There's an effects & presets pane in the standard AE layout. Check it out. You'll find the presets there. You won't find them in the dropdown menu.
The typewriter effect isn't in the Effects & Presets panel either unfortunately.
Same Problem here. Show Effects and Show Animations is active of course. But in the Effect and Animations Tab under Text, there is only Timecode and Numbers.

You are looking in Effects. What you are looking for are the animation presets for text. This is an entirely different thing. They are not accessed through the Effects menu. You find them by looking in the Animation menu. You can browse or find them by name using the first four options, find them in Bridge (Bridge / AE interface may be buggy) or by looking at the Effects and Presets Panel which is found in several of the standard workspaces on the far right side of the UI or opened by using the Window>Effects & Presets menu or, as shown there, by using the Ctrl/Cmnd + 5 keyboard shortcut:
Animation Presets are right at the top of the Effects & Presets Panel:
You have to spin them open to find the text animators or search for them using the search field:
Then you have to spin open the folders:
There are hundreds of animation presets.
If you plan on using After Effects spend you need to spend some serious time becoming intimate with the UI. Just like your lover, it has it's own set of problems, but the really good stuff can only be found if you spend some serious time paying attention.
If you are new please start here: Basic AE and start using the Search Help field at the top right corner of the UI. It's more friendly than Google and way more efficient than the user forums.
Gosh, i found it. Thank you very much!
