Hi guys, i have a little problem with the awesome text plugin...

It is possible to exclude <br> from the tween parser, and put in the the string as complete tag in a single step?
For example:
abc<br>abc became
a - b - c - <br> - a - b - c
and not
a - b - c - < - b - r - > - a - b - c
Thanks for the answers,

Hi and welcome to the GreenSock forums.


Sorry, our TextPlugin is currently designed only to handle animating plain text chars. 

Unfortunately, its not something we can accommodate quickly.

It's certainly a valid feature request and perhaps something we'll be able add in the future.



Thanks for asking.

Replace br with some tag and then replace again that with br and then give span some css


$demoText.html( $demoText.html().replace('<br>', "^").replace(/./g, "<span>$&</span>").replace(/\s/g, " ").replace('^', "<br>"));


span.test {
    display: block !important;
    height: 0;
