i Discovered today that scaling a parent makes the text scale not the text container. This is ugly so I undo and build an animation inside the symbol. I can't seem to effect the elements timeline using this method.
this works to modify the text element:
How would I target the timeline? Or better all of the timelines inside the symbol?
I managed to answer both my questions again.
the following link explains targeting nest objects.
And to play all elements in symbol at once, this one confuses me. I swear the playback option was not in the main timeline earlier but using it I could start and stop at labels in my components timeline.
