Merging elements

Hi, does anyone know whether it's possible to merge text boxes so that they have the same properties?I'm trying to write the names of multiple locations on a map, and it would be great if they could all appear at the same time (even when all the timers are set to zeros there's a little lag which makes it appear quite jagged). Thanks!

Hi Paul, 

Currently you can select multiple elements to manipulate their size or camera position by holding down the ctrl key and clicking on the desired element.

If you select a single element and copy it, you will also copy the properties which can be pasted as many times as required.

However, you cannot merge properties or allow more than one animation to run at the same time.

I hope this answers your query.

In addition to what Jonny said,

Make sure you set all THREE settings on each element to zero and not just the draw time and pauses. If you change the draw time, the transition time, and the pauses all to zero, then the text may all appear at the same moment.

alternately, you could put all the text into a jpg, png or svg file and import it all as a single image.

Hope that helps
