Text Sketch Motion

I've seen several suggestions similar to this, but not this exact suggestion, so I figured i'd create a new idea.

I'd like text combined with Sketch Motion.

I use sketch motion heavily to circle and point out things on the screen. But sometimes I need to have text on the screen. The text fonts don't match the style of the text motion. I'd like a text motion text box. So: type what it needs to say, but it's animated as if someone is writing it. It should have all the same options as sketch motion for color, line thickness, and speed.

I've seen some suggestions of people asking for fully-fledged whiteboard animation features. This is similar but not this same. I'm asking for something simpler. Just an animated text box with a handwriting font.

Good Idea, I could make use of this.

Someones sure to come along and suggest you take.
1. A sketch motion callout
2. And text callout.

And group them together, save it to the library.
Which works, but functionality trumps half measures and workarounds.
You got my vote.

Thanks. Via that method, the text itself wouldn't be animated, right? I'm thinking of animating the text, as if someone is writing it on the screen. Like how sketch motion looks like someone is drawing the shapes on the screen.

You could "open" the group and add an effect to the text.

Which is doable but less than seamless.
A TechSmith designed callout could take all of this into account.
