    Hi -
    If it's on one line, you could also make the text into a m. clip symbol, then make another that'll be a mask for it - black square the height of your text. Use a tween for the mask to make it expand to cover the text. Put both on the stage w/ the mask m. clip in a layer above text & set it to be a mask. [Tweak the frame rate of the whole movie to make it faster or slower.]

    Good luck,
    El
    P.S. You can also do a search to get many other ideas - they're out there!

    Hi -
    Well, I have the Google toolbar on my browser, but if you don't have such a handy thing, go to google.com and type-in something like:

    flash text effect - typewriter

    Good luck,
