Copy + paste text styles in After Effects. Yes, really.


How it works

To copy a text style, select a Text Layer and run Layer > Copy Text Style.

After a text style has been copied, it can be pasted to other layers with Layer > Paste Text Style.


Style Bandit copies the text style from a selected Text Layer, and pastes that style to entire Text Layers.

    • Copy font properties & paragraph alignment
    • Paste to all selected Text Layers
    • Paste between comps and projects

Map to Keyboard

Choose custom keyboard shortcuts that fit your workflow. For example:

Windows: CTRL + ALT + C / CTRL + ALT + V

Mac: ⌘ + ⌃ + C / ⌘ + ⌃ + V

Copy Paste


Note: Style Bandit requires the Expression Engine be set to JavaScript (not Legacy ExtendScript). If you have difficulty pasting a style, double-check this project setting in File > Project Settings >  Expression Engine > JavaScript.



The easiest way to install is by using the aescripts + aeplugins manager app
