Saving a Custom Text Style
After you modify parameters in the Style pane (such as Gradient or Glow) or Format pane
(such as Tracking or Slant), you can save the style you create to the Text Styles category
in the Library. These custom styles can then be used and applied like preset styles.
Creating and Editing Text
Note: Custom presets saved to the Library are stored in
/Users/username/Library/Application Support/Motion/Library/Text Styles/.
To save a modified text style to the Library
Select the text with the modified parameters you want to save as a style.
In the Style pane, open the Preset pop-up menu and choose one of the following options:
• To save a style with only the Style pane parameters, choose Save Style Attributes.
• To save a style with only the Format pane parameters, choose Save Basic Attributes.
• To save a style with parameters from both Style and Format panes, choose
Save All Basic + Style Attributes.
In the Save Preset To Library dialog, enter the name for the preset.
The custom preset is saved to the Text Styles category in the Library. Custom presets can
be identified in the Library by the small user badge that appears in the lower-right corner
of the text style icon.
