    Referencing text source in a separate comp?

      hi all

       

      I'm trying to set up a template that has a comp where the user changes a single word of text.

       

      I made a different comp, where I want just the outline of that same text--and to sync them up I am linking back to the original text source parameter with the pick-whip--so that when the user changes the text, the outline also updates properly. So far so good.

       

      This breaks as soon as the user changes any type parameters (font size, tracking, all that stuff).

       

      So I need a better way. I thought about just duplicating the comp in the timeline and using find edges, but that is imprecise from what I can tell

       

      thanks for your tips!
