The other option they have put in for text in After Effects CS5 is the ability to choose which words always stick together on a paragraph. Now in this example I created what's known as paragraph text. I defined a box, started typing my words and they auto wrapped to always be inside that box. That's paragraph text. But as a result the breaks between lines may happen at places that I don't want it to happen. What if I wanted to keep certain words together like "be" and "careful"? I want to keep those on the same line.
Well now there is a new option over in the Character palette. You select the Options arrow and choose No Break. Now it will reflow to keep those guys on the same line if at all possible, and then reflow later characters to fit inside the paragraph box. So it's another small but useful addition that they put into CS5.
