  1. 1. Name two of the three panes in the Text tab of the Inspector.
    Format, Style, and Layout.
  2. 2. Which tool do you use to change the scale, position, rotation, formatting, or style of an individual character in a text layer, and how do you select that tool?
    You use the Adjust Glyph tool, which you can select from the 2D transform tools in the Toolbar (the first of the three View tools) or by Control-clicking a text layer in the Canvas and choosing Transform Glyph.
  3. 3. From which two locations can you apply a preset text style?
    From the Style Preset pop-up menu in the Style pane of the Text Inspector, or from the Text Styles category in the Library.
  4. 4. Which behavior was used to create all the Text Sequence presets in the Library?
    The Sequence Text behavior.
  5. 5. Which parameters of a text layer can you animate directly in the Canvas using a Sequence Text behavior?
    Position, rotation, and scale.
  6. 6. How can you animate an individual character so that it behaves differently from the rest of a text layer that is animated with a text behavior?
    Set keyframes for that character using the Adjust Glyph tool.
  7. 7. With the Adjust Glyph tool, you can change the offset, scale, and rotation of a character directly in the Canvas. Where are those parameters located in the Inspector?
    In the Format pane of the Text Inspector (as opposed to the Properties tab, which contains Position, Scale, and Rotation parameters for the entire text layer).
  8. 8. Describe one method for turning on motion blur, and identify where you can adjust its settings.
    You can turn on motion blur from the Render Options pop-up menu, by choosing View > Render Options > Motion Blur, or by pressing Option-M.
