I'm working on a project in After Effects involving text templates. I'm creating text boxes and pasting/typing in text and eventually when I try and create new lines of text it is beyond the length of the text box and therefore is not in frame and the overflow icon appears.
My question is, is there an expression or script that will automatically resize my text so that everything I type is always visible in the text box and there is no overflow?
This is how paragraph text is supposed to work. Of course one could write a convoluted script, but there is no auto-fit function, so you'd have to calculate the font metrics and dimensions yourself. That being the case, you might have better luck using plain line text.
