SplitText with MotionPath not splitting words

Recommended Posts

Why splitText is ignoring white space between words?

i tried reduceWhiteSpace: false, but it didn't work.

You're placing each character onto the motionPath at exactly the same spot, and then staggering the start time of each animation. White space has absolutely nothing to do with it. See what I mean? 


Perhaps you should try using the native <textPath> element in SVG and then animate the startOffset with GSAP.
