    Default adjusting timing within Fade Line In behavior

    Hello,
    I have a "Fade Line In" behavior applied to a title I would like to reveal. Some lines are longer than others so I would like them to hold a beat before the next line reveals. How do I adjust the timing of those reveals with keyframes? Thanks

    You simply drag the behavior further out into the timeline. The end condition of the line defaults to "Hold." What version of Motion is this?

    EDIT: Perhaps this will help.

    Sorry, I still can't figure out how to do this... in essence I just wanted the timeline to freeze in two parts. The lines fade in but at too fast a pace and I would like them to hold a bit before the next lines reveal. How can I vary the timing of the revealing lines?
    I don't see a behavior that I can stop. Which behavior would that be?

    Hmmm.. now I'm thinking perhaps I should have different layers with the different lines so I can adjust the timing of each line individually. Right now I have six lines all typed on one page. Should I divide the lines up into different layers?
    Is this the way it should be done?

    If you want the pacing to be different for the various lines, perhaps so. I'm just dragging out the duration of the behavior and that spaces out the fade in of each line over time.
