    Im looking for a way to break the line if “. ” found in the source text

    For example – line1. line2. line 3 should be printed as


    line 2


    Note: I’m getting the source text for this layer from another later. I’m trying this currently

    thisText = thisComp.layer(“Text from here”).text.sourceText.replace(“. “,”/r”);

    This uses a csv to drive the source text, but I’m sure you can use this to get started.

    src = footage(“your footage layer name”).datavalue([1,1])

    src.replace(“. ” , “.” + “\r” + “\r”)

    Simply use:

    text.sourceText.split('. ').join('\r');
