I have a simple expression that counts the layers below the layer. A text box shows the result. I would like to copy this result. I can only select the original text.

 

Thanks

How about Animation > Keyframe Assistant > Convert Expression to Keyframes. Then copy the text and Undo (if necessary)?

That's just how it works. No way around it. If you need to have persistent data, you need to write a script.

Hi Dan,

 

That's a clever trick! Gonna remember that one.

 

In the meantime, I managed to write a simple script that placed my generated text in a textfield. Easy to copy!

 

Thanks

Matthias
