    Quick and dirty:

    – CONTROL Layer with two sliders (ITALIC IN & ITALIC OUT)

    – Animator on the Text Layer with Skew 22

    – Advanced: Based on Words

    – Expression / Range Selector:

    Start: thisComp.layer(“CONTROL”)(“Effects”)(“ITALIC IN”)(1);

    End: thisComp.layer(“CONTROL”)(“Effects”)(“ITALIC OUT”)(1);

    Now you can use the sliders to set the words that should be in italics 😉

    Hi Sarah! Thanks for the reply! Yes the skew method works well. The problem I had was that I needed to be able to select multiple words.

    What I do now is use a code Dan Ebert wrote a while ago. Basically, I have the words encapsulated in square brackets [] be italic and the words in curly brackets {} be bold. I’m using the dirty skew and stroke method.
