Improve "inline" styling of text via Expressions
It would be great to not only be able to use the "getStyleAt()" method, but also implement something like "setStyleAt()" in order to style portions of the text separately.
It would also help to be able to chain different styles together. Right now, it's impossible to do proper text styling with different style types programmatically. It would be incredibly helpful, especially for Templates / MOGRTs.
In an effort to improve communications between you and the After Effects team, we have moved this feedback to the After Effects page on the Adobe Support Community. As requested, bugs and feature requests are able to live separately in that forum.
This move is happening in part to acknowledge that we haven't been responsive enough on UserVoice, and are combining our forums to help remedy that. Check your profile on the Adobe Support Community to see any migrated posts that you've created or commented on. If you had an item on UserVoice that did not make the migration, please bring it over to our new home.
See you soon on the Adobe Support Forum!

Yes please. Any change to sourceText through scripting will lose all special character formatting in layer and set the formatting of first character to all characters in text layer.
This would unlock so many possibilities through scripting.
