A property called “visible characters” which is an integer value that will default to the amount of characters in the text, and it can have keyframes, let me explain
Basically, if you have the text “text” then the visible characters will be set to 4 and it will read out “text” on the screen. But if you set the visible characters to 3 then it will read out “tex” and if you set visible characters to 0 then the text will read out nothing. But it isn’t actually removing the characters, it’s just making them invisible, so it won’t change the layout and stuff.
This could be an alternative to use for the typewriter effect since it gives you more control with keyframes. You don’t have to go 1 letter at a time so you can manually make entire words appear. You could also go backwards at any time, and you can even go backwards and forwards so you could create effects like backspacing a word then typing a different one.
