Some SplitText characters not fading in with typewriter effect

Recommended Posts



I'm animating in some text with a typewriter effect. Problem is sometimes a few characters are not displaying. I'm using Adobe Edge and previewing in Chrome. Anyone else had the same problem?!


Many thanks chaps,

Hi akadigital  :)


hmm , for me everything works correctly with edge animate , pls try this ( simple version of above codepen ) :


var tl =  new TimelineMax({repeat:-1, yoyo:true,repeatDelay:1}),
mySplitText = new SplitText("#Stage_myText", {type:"chars"}), // myText = id of your text in Stage
chars = mySplitText.chars;

Thank you Diaco, changing the staggerFrom parameters, 0.01 and 0.08 to 0.03 seems to have worked. :)

Hey Diaco,


I was hoping you could help me as well. I'm trying to use SplitText with Flash CC.


I tried calling the text with the format you had "#Stage_myText" .I am assuming that you have a dynamic text box on the stage named myText.


It throws me an error and the banner does not run.


Am I doing something wrong or is the naming different for Flash. I tried this.myText but no luck.

Thanks Diaco, 


I should have been more specific. I am leveraging Flash CC to export out a Canvas file.

Sorry, SplitText only works on text in DOM elements (p, div, h2, etc), there is no support for any canvas text at this time. Text on canvas is just a glob of pixels mashed into a big image, no way for SplitText to measure it and split it apart into individual characters and target them individually.
