Can I create a text symbol with different alignment?


(Antonio) #1

I would like to create a symbol with same text on all scenes but different alignment, line height etc, so when i change text content it will be an all scenes but preserving the format. Can I?
thanks

Unfortunately a symbol stores properties like line height and alignment within the symbol itself, so it would require producing separate elements (symbols are the wrong tool for this case).

Yes, this is an improper use of the timeline with some limitations but it works :slight_smile:

You can do it with a symbol with animation to “0.00”,

In this example I create 3 scenes with the same symbol.
In scene 1 the symbol loads only settings of the timeline 1, in scene 2 the timeline 2…
