Hi! I'm trying to, through an expression, bring a source text from other composition, but it doesn't keep the font style that i'm using in that original text. I suppose that the issue is that in this original text I'm combining 2 different types of font style: Regular and Bold. But, when I get it into the other composition using the expression "comp("X").layer("Y").text.sourceText", it appears all in Regular. May anybody help me, please!! Thanks!!

Nothing to fix because nothing is broken. Changing the source text with an expression will always use the first formatting style used in the layer. You need to split up your layers or use the njew text style expressions.

Hi, Mylenium! Thanks a lot for taking the time to answer me.

Unfortunatly, split the layers up is not an option because I can't modify the designing of the project.

I'll try using the "new text style expressions, but... What do you mean exactly with that?The Dropdown Menu Expression Controls?

Regards!

Also at the very least consider using text animators to hide unwanted parts on duplicate layers. Realyl no point in trying to do everything on just a single layer.
