When I add a behavoiur to a text there doesn't happen an animation of the text but just of the text box or the text field while the single characters should make some movements. How does this wiorks? It isn't shown in the tutorial - why?

you must use a text callout [not a shape callout] if you want behaviors to work [see basic or bold]

You may need to apply a different "Text" setting.
 Behaviors can effect the text box as a whole. Or the charterers individually, depending on the settings applied. 

If the behavior "Type" applied is "Object" you need to change that to "Text"and chose a setting from the drop down menu for text.

 See Image Below,click to enlarge.

Thx very much. I don't have this "Type" Menu, just not there. I just see Style, Movement, Direction, Speed  ... as you can see here, I have the german version, just updated it today.

Some behavior options only work on certain callouts.
ie; Type option



For example the "Jump and Fall" behavior will only have the "Type" option on plain text callouts not on the callouts with any background color or image.



If you want to use a image or background color callout, a workaround is to put the callout you want to use on the canvas,

Highlight the text on the callout and delete it,  then overlay a plain text callout on top of it and edit and format that text.

You can then add the behavior to the overlayed callout which will then animate just the text and not the whole callout.

When done group the two together.
