Hello, Iˇm completely new in AE and spend my whole day on this. I want to move the text up as it is typing itself, but it shows errors. Iˇm working step by step with YT videos and this seems to me like hard programming. Iď be thankful for any help ♥

That expression looks like it belongs somewhere else, not applied to the Source Text property. The last line of the expression is trying to subtract a two dimensional value from the text itself. It looks like it's meant for a position property maybe?

I concur with Dan. It's not meant to go in the source text, but rather the position. Anything more we can't know, since you haven't provided a link to the tutorial you mentioned.
