The only way to save Character Panel settings iin a preset is to add a keyframe to Source Text. You can then apply the Animation preset to a text layer. Unfortunately, the text will also be replaced. The work around is to put your original file in a text document, apply the animation preset, then copy the original text from the text file and paste it to the text layer.
thanxs for the quick answer.
So it would be a request to have such presets in AE?
It´s such a powerfull Text-engine but the lack of presetting is quite astonishing, isn´t it?
I will post this in the request area, if it´s not posted there already ....
Don't worry if such a request has already been made. The rule for Adobe users is to file feature requests like people vote in Chicago: early and often.
sorry for that late answer,
@ dave : i had to laugh .... (it´s not only adobe´s policy)
@ szalam: thanks for positing this.
@ all : maybe this could be scripted ?
