Creating a text leading property in Essential Graphics.

Hi. Trying to create some text templates using essential graphics. I've added properties for everything I need, but can not get the leading to work.
Yes, I know it's not yet supported.

Was able to ALMOST find a solution by adding an expression (temp = thisComp.layer("Leading").effect("Slider Control")("Slider");

[temp, temp]) to my line spacing under the text animators. Created a null. Added a slider to it. Pick whipped the expression to the null's slider. It shows up and functions within my essential graphics, but is using both the x+y axis, so my text spacing is now being adjusted diagonally versus just moving up and down the Y axis like I need it ton (aka the text line spacing is moving both up and down, but also left to right simultaneously depending on slider input.)

Anyone have a workaround to this? Plz send help.

okay. I figured it out. In case anyone else has this same issue, just change the expression on your line spacing to [value[0], temp]; instead of the [temp, temp]; on the last line.

Super helpful thanks!! I was in the same pickle and couldn't for the life of me get the slider to work. It was the fast that two values were being affected that was catching me out. Thanks much!
