String Expression Control
Not to be confused with the similar "Text expression control".
I just want an expression control that is a string.
Currently whenever we want to use a string like this we have to shove it into a textlayer and then it's textLayer.text.value.text or something because a textLayer value is a textDocument which has all the text attributes and whatnot
I just want a string. A simple character array.
Would simplify this textlayer workflow massively.
it doesn't even have to be editable in the effects panel (IMO, though I'm sure people would ask for it eventually)

As the Checkbox/Color/Slider/Etc…Controls, it would great to have a simple String Control that could be added to any layer and which allow us to set/get string into it (JSON for exemple, FilePath and many more)
That could be really useful for expressions and scripts without having to use textLayer for that. Thank You…

I would suggest a new feature in Expression controls.
My suggestion is to add a txt string box.
A Txt string box would be useful when you have several
different Suffixed finishes.
Example: ["", "%", "€", "million €", "billion €", "000 €", "000 000 €", "$", "million $", "billion $ "," 000 $ "," 000 000 $ "," ₣ "," mil. ₣ "," billion ₣ "," ° C "].
I am currently writing them in arey.
When you add a new entry you have to change the arey and the structure of the script.
It would be very easy to have an input field for txt as Expression controls that would link it to the script and you could write what you need into it.
