- 4. Typewriter Settings
- 5. Post-based Slider Options
From the Slider Revolution plugin's Add-On page, click "Install this Add-on", and then "Activate Plugin".
Then click the "How to Use" button to activate the Quick Guide slideout.
Then after enabling the Typewriter Add-On for your slider, the Default Settings can also be adjusted in the same panel.
5. Typewriter Settings
5.1 Basic Settingsback to top
- Typing Speed
The amount of time (in milliseconds) that the characters will be “typed”
Recommended values: 30-100
- Start Delay
Useful for displaying the “blinking” cursor for a second (1000) or two before the typing actually begins.
Special Note: Adjust the Layer’s “start time” in the slide’s timeline to decide when the Layer will first officially appear.
- Line Break Delay
Add a small delay (in milliseconds) for each <br> tag included with your text. Useful for simulating real-time typing behavior.
Note: The delay will be applied both before and after the cursor “breaks” to a new line.
5.2 Blinking Cursorback to top
- Enable/Disable Blinking Cursor
Simulate the “typing” visually.
- Blinking Speed
The amount of time (in milliseconds) that the cursor will “blink”
Recommended Values: 500-750
- Cursor Type
Display a blinking underscore of blinking vertical-bar.
- Hide on-complete
Hide the Blinking Cursor once the typing sequence has officially completed
5.3 Sequenced Linesback to top
- Enable/Disable Sequenced Lines
Additional lines can be added below the default editor as shown next to the red arrow in the screenshot above, or can also be added to individual posts for post-based sliders.
- Deletion Speed
The amount of time (in milliseconds) that the text will be “deleted” in preparation for the next sequenced line.
Recommended Values: 20-50
- Deletion Delay
The amount of time (in milliseconds) before the current line begins to delete itself.
- New Line Delay
The amount of time (in milliseconds) before the next line begins to “type” (after the previous line has deleted itself).
- Constant Loop
Replay the sequence once the last line has been typed.
5.4 Word Delay Patternsback to top
- Enable/Disable Word Delay Patterns
Insert delays between words to further simulate real-time typing.
- For every (x) words…
- … delay by (x) milliseconds
Word Delay Pattern formula for the example shown in the screenshot above:
- Delay typing by 250ms after the first 2 words are typed
- Then delay by 250ms after the next word is typed
- Repeat the pattern
5. Sequencing/Multiline for Post-based Slidersback to top
The Typewriter Add-on adds "sequenced line" options to your individual posts:
To setup this option for one of your post-based sliders:
Inside the shortcode, the "default" part can be regular text, or anything from the post-based meta:
- The "default" is a backup option that will be used for posts
that don't contain at least one "sequenced line" Typewriter meta.
