    Embedding the Numbers text effect in another line of text?

    Spinland

      I want to have a line of text, such as "We are NNN strong!" where the NNN will be using the Numbers effect to count up from one value to another. It doesn't appear possible to apply the effect just to some text on a text layer, so I then experimented with making the counting numbers their own text layer positioned so it shows in a gap in the main text.

       

       

      The problem there is the Numbers effect has an absolute position attribute, and I want it parented to the original text so I can animate the entire line of text moving around as a single entity. Is there a way to link them together so I can move them as I desire? If not, can anyone suggest a good workaround? I'm using CS6.

       

       

      Many thanks in advance!
