Hello,
I would like to link two text layers (like we were able to do in Xpresso) so if I adjust the kerning and change the word, it changes it on the second layer.
How do I do that in C4D 23?

Thanks
Tim

Hi Tim,

Please have a look at the file below. Is that working for your project?

Example

I have set this up in S24, but tested in R23. Note: the MoText (green) will be a Text Object (blue) in S24.

Cheers

Thanks so much! that’s a little different for what I need, but it definitely helped.  I had trouble finding Xpresso Tag and thought they had got rid of Xpresso.  Been awhile since I’ve been in C4D.  I think I got it now.
Cheers!

Thanks for the feedback, Tim.

I see – you were under the impression that the XPresso option was gone. So with that extra information, the initial question changes.
Tags> Programming Tags> XPresso (for everyone reading along.)

If you need something else, please never hesitate to ask.

Cheers
