    Hi. various versions of the expression below works, but not as I expect. It should return my original text from the main text layer in the font that the layer is set to, and then add the source text from text layer 2 but in the font listed in the expression;

    value + ‘ ‘ + thisComp.layer(“Text Layer 2”).text.sourceText.style.setFont(“ArialNarrow”);

    thanks for any help

    Sorry, you can’t use an expression to set multiple fonts in a single text layer.
