I am totally new to after effects and I make teaching videos. I want to change suffix "K" to "%" but I am having a hard time removing it from the template I have bought from an online store. I have tried to contact them through the mail but I have not received any email yet so it's getting delayed.

What I see is when I delete the value control layer they get removed but inside that layer, I am not able to see any option of changing it so there must be something inside of it.

Google Drive Link for reproducibility. I am using slide 14. Please guide me.

  • I don't understand the question. Where is the "suffix" you want to change?

    The red layers are the text layers. If you select one and hit EE (double-tap the letter e) you should see some expressions. If one of these is for source text post that expression in your question.

  • Sure, if you post the expression on the source text, I will try to fix it for you

The text labels are all controlled by a simple expression that takes the value of a slider, converts it to an integer and adds the letter "K" at the end. Even without programming skills you can see where the "k" part happens (but I put in some magic sparkles to give you a hint). Simply replace the letter "K" with "%" and you're golden.

I wrote a script that finds and replaces text in expressions. You can get it here. I'd suggest if you use it that you search and replace the whole line (x + "K"), as just replacing the letter k with % may ma%e other expressions stop wor%ing.

Also, I hope that the project you linked is just a dummy project. I doubt the client would be happy with you posting details of their presentation on the public internet without their approval. At the least it could get you fired.
