    I have a text layer with lots of text.
    I need to highlight in it, a specific word, in all places where it occurs.
    Is it possible to do this not manually, but with an expression or script?
    I would like to emphasize this word.
    But perhaps you can change its color, or some other solution.
    I hope for your help.

    Add a text animator.
    On the selector, add expression selector.
    Inside the expression of the expression selector write this. Modify the “asd” from row 1 with what word you want but do not remove anything else except “asd”.

    var regex = /.asd/g;
    var t = text.sourceText;
    var splitText = t.split("\r");

    function indexMatched(index){
    var matched = false;
    var match;
    while ((match = regex.exec(t)) !== null){
    matched |= match.index
