 +====== Sparkling Text Layer ======
 +This layer reveals a single line of text with a sparkle transition. You can choose from two types of sparkles and alter the direction. The layer could also be used to simply place a burst of sparkles somewhere by leaving the text field blank.

 +^ Group ^ Parameter ^ Function ^
 +| Content | Text | This is the text that will appear with the layer. |
 +| Animation | Incoming | Choose how the text will appear when set to Live. The ''​Particles''​ options will use the sparkle type set in the section below. |
 +| :::       | Outgoing | Choose how the text will disappear. When ''​Same as Incoming''​ is selected and a particle animation is set as the incoming transition, the exit direction will be the reverse of how it entered. |
 +| :::       | Duration | Set the time for the animations to complete. |
 +| Sparkle | Type         | The style of the particles used in the animation. Either ''​Dots''​ or ''​Stars''​. |
 +| :::     | Color Scheme | ''​Constant Color''​ tints the particles a uniform color. ''​Gradient''​ applies a color ramp over the length of the animation. ''​Rainbow''​ runs through all the colors as the animation completes. ''​Random''​ chooses colors at random throughout the animation length. |
 +| :::     | Color        | If the Color or Gradient options are selected above, you can pick the color here. The first color is the starting color in the gradient. |
 +| :::     | Size         | Defines the size of the particles relative to the text size set below. |
 +| :::     | Gravity ​     | Negative values will make particles float up as they generate. Positive values will make them fall down. A value of ''​0''​ will remove any influence of gravity. |
 +| :::     | Attraction ​  | Negative values will make the particles burst outward. Positive values will make them implode into where they came. A value of ''​0''​ will remove any influence of attraction. |
 +| Appearance | Text        | You can use the Mac font chooser to adjust how the text will look. |
 +| :::        | Drop Shadow | Enables options for a drop shadow to be applied on the text. You can set the color, opacity, blur amount and the distance and direction from the text. |
 +| Geometry | Anchor ​   | Set the position of the text relative to the sides or corners of the screen. |
 +| :::      | X/Y Inset | Defines how far from the selected edges or corners the text will be. |
