It seems to me like you're going about this a little wrong. If you want the text layer to not be blurry, then you're saying that you want it to be in focus... i.e., in the focal plane of the camera. So the question isn't about how to make the text not affected by depth-of-field blur but how to focus on the text layer.
Or did I misunderstand?
Hi, Thanks for your response,
I could adjust the focal length on the camera to match the text but that then makes some other elements in my project change their focus, or 'blurryness'. I was just hopeing to keep the camera as it was and just make the text layer be not affected by the camera's focal length. Turn off DOP for the text type of thing. Is there such a setting? Thank you so much for your time
No, there isn't and it doesn't make sense. DOF is a camera artifact and thus applied globally. Even 3D programs do it that way. If, for some reason, you need it, duplicate the comp and leave one of the duplicates with DOF off, then compose the 2 comps as 2D layers in a aprent comp.
