    Oh yeah as a bonus: since the marker lines are textcharacters you can do all kinds of fancy reveal animations with them by varying the type of range selector and or adding different properties instead of just the horizontal scaling I did in the example

    Yeah I started playing with it! It’s pretty cool! I’ve had the brackets “[]” replace with a zero width space (“\u200b”) so I can easily target it with other expression selector (color for example).

    I’ll try to see if I can have the spaces between words be highlighted too when more than a word is selected in between brackets. I’ll let you know !

    It’s not that easy I believe, because the brackets could span multiple lines and you have to test for that.

    Like I hinted, usually just a bit of extra horizontal padding can bleed them together.

    BTW: I haven’t actually tested it in Premiere ? I hope it doesn’t break there ?
