    Hi I’d really appreciate some help with my problem, I need to do something simillar to the “guess the phrase” show, where given a certain word it will randomly start appering, but I need to link this to a solid box (image or shape, at this point anything will do) so this box disappears as the letter is starting to fade in, I have the randomizer of the word working from a solution in this forum (attached below), but I can’t figure out how to link this box to a specific letter so that they both are in the same position, let alone making it disappear as one letter fades in.

    delay = 1.7;
    fadeTime = .5;
    letter = 1;

    a = [];for(i = 0; i < textTotal; i++) a.push(i);
    for (i = 0; i < a.length; i++){
    idx = i + Math.floor(random(a.length - i));
    temp = a[i];
    a[i] = a[idx];
    a[idx] = temp;
    myDelay = a[textIndex-1]*delay;
    t1 = inPoint + myDelay;
    t2 = t1 + fadeTime;

    You can’t retrieve the position of a letter in a paragraph. The only way you could do what you want if you made a layer for each letter.
