Spin and Shrink animation with variable

Feb 26, 2014

I am trying to use a spin & shrink Exit Animation on a text box with a variable. 
However, when I preview it, it just disappears. Any reason why this is happening? 

And I have the same problem with the Shrink animation.

NOTE: The other animations (with the exception of "shrink" and "spin and shrink")seem to work fine with a custom variable.

Hi Jeff,

Tx for the video. I didn't understand what you were getting at regarding the reference to a text entry vs a plain text box. So, two things:

1. IF you add a border around the text box (or a fill) containing the text entry, you will see the spinning.

2. Although this seems puzzling, I "sort of" get it. Because this isn't "real" text. It's sort of like virtual text. That is, it's generated from the text entry variable, so it seems it can't animate in the way that text can. Clearly, that's my "layman's" explanation . A techie would have a real explanation (not a virtual one ).
