    Hi, for a specific project I would need to parent a text’s font and font size with code. The issue is I cannot find any pickwhip for that, any idea ?

    Hi ! Sorry for the late reply. Unfortunately this doesn’t explain what I am asking, I need to parent a font to another so we can change it to any font we want without having to create an array of any sort.

    Using an array could create a few workarounds but not the direct parenting. Do you have any idea ?

    Sincerely, Lucas 🙂
