Hi Ae community. I'm trying to fix an issue I have with my shape layers (text box) expression. 

Im trying to create a template file with basic text layers, that have coloured backgrounds per line behind the text.
I've got sliders working to a point but the box isn't fully responsive to the text length or number of lines. 
bellow is a screen grab of what I'm experiencing. I hope you can help me. Thank you in advance. 

Best wishes

claire.

Looks like you used paragraph text in which case the expressions won't work reliably. You need to use line text.

Re-type or copy & paste. There's no simple switch for that.

If the text tool (Ctrl/Cmnd + t) is selected, you can right-click on a selected text layer and Convert to Paragraph Text or Convert to Point Text.  A carriage return will be added if you have multiple lines in the Paragraph Text when you convert to Point Text. They will need to be deleted.
