    Hi!

    I’m fairly new to expressions and I’m not exactly sure how to proceed with this.

    I want to create a lower third template with essential graphics.

    I have two lines, and I want to move the position of the second line according the amount of text of the first line.

    You can view and example for understanding better.

    On the second text layer (the one to the right), add the code below to the position property. Make sure not to mess with the scale property of the first text layer (the one to the left).

    value+[thisComp.layer("Text layer 1").sourceRectAtTime(time).width, 0];
