I’m trying to do a very simple text animation, making letters move in 2D. So in this example, I want to move the letter ”p”. So I click ”p” and then press i, move it into another position and: all the other letters are stacked on top of each other! I'm on on Blender 2.78

Blender 2.78 Windows 10 computer: Aspire A315-54K x64-based PC Intel(R) Core(TM) i5-6300U CPU @ 2.40GHz, 2496 Mhz, 2 kernels

  1. make all objects selectable again...(would be nice if they were selectable when you upload your file so we can work with it and don't have to make everything selectable first. You are searching for an answer so you should make it easy for us to help...)

  2. open panel "nonlinear animation"

  3. right click on the left panel and delete empty animation data

  4. select the object you want to animate

  5. Hit I to insert keyframe -> location

  6. move to another frame

  7. move your object

  8. Hit I to insert keyframe -> location

  9. run animation -> works

enter image description here

  • $\begingroup$ Sorry about the unconvenience. Well, I go to the NLA, but there is nothing there. And I can't choose anything by right- or left clicking. Do note that I am in 2.78 $\endgroup$ Jun 29 '21 at 13:30
  • $\begingroup$ that's why i asked...how much experience do you have? you wrote: i tried it in 2.93 -> so try my solution in 2.93 $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ Sorry. My experience is slight I'm afraid. Your solution works is 2.93 just as you say. But I really like to work in 2.78. :-( $\endgroup$ Jun 29 '21 at 13:37
  • $\begingroup$ i am sorry, but my experience in 2.78 is zero....i cannot help you there. I even don't have that version....but PLEASE update your question to make it clear that you want a solution for 2.78. So nobody else has to waste his time for nothing.... $\endgroup$
