    I have one problem. I’m linking two texts together. Please see the picture:

    Can please someone help me out. I can’ figure out, what is wrong with this expression. In version 17 you can link the style of one text to another. I’m trying to have on the text TWO the same style as text ONE.
    I used the expression: thisComp.layer(“ONE”) and is not working.

    Thanks, Saso

    My guess is that maybe in your project settings you have the expression engine set to Legacy ExtendScript?

    Thank you for that. This was the issue. In Project Settings, I changed the Expressions engine to Javascript.
