    1. Hey Mario!

      Not really no... the text has to be split line by line, so the text element, while it would work, would not keep it's formatting properly. You could not have bold, italic, links, etc.

      So that's why I used the heading element. If you want, you can change the tag to <p> to make it like a text editor element.

  1. Thanks a lot for this code. Couple of things:

    1. I prefer to minimise the amount of plugins on my website. So instead if installing Code Snippets, I used the Elementor "Custom Code" section. I also removed any code outside of the ...

    This meant this was removed:
    add_action( 'wp_footer', function () { ?>


    <?php } );

    Is that ok? Will it still work fine?

    2. I find that the line-by-line code doesn't work for me. I've tried using Code Snippets plugin too but it just doesn't seem to work

    Many thanks!

    1. 1. Yes it's okay
      2. hmm the line by line code should work.. the class name given to the element is different then, did you change this as well? If so, I'd need to see your page to find out the problem.


    1. Hey Andonis!

      You need the class name "textLineReveal" on your heading elements, and not "textWordReveal", as you are using the line by line version!


  2. Hi again Maxime,
    I noticed that some of the letters (all the 'y's) are getting chopped off at the bottom of each line. I tried wider margins, but that doesn't seem to be the problem.
    Do you think you can help me put a wider margin somewhere within this code?


      1. Thank you very much! I didn't think of that:-)
        It didn't work at first by px but when I tried 1.5 em's, it worked:-)

  3. Hey Maxime,

    I'm having a similar issue with the above re line height. I don't want to change my line height (it's set as auto/default.) as increasing it would make the typography not feel right/un-natural between each line.

    Is there no other fix for this? Without the text effect it all looks great, with the effect it starts cutting the the Y's etc etc.

    1. Hey Will,

      Add line height enough to fix the issue. Then, depending on which version of the code you are using, add either this CSS for the line reveal version:

      .textLineReveal .elementor-heading-title .line {

      Or this CSS for the word reveal version:

      .textWordReveal .elementor-heading-title .line {

      Adjust that negative px value until you have the line height that you want.


      1. Ah nice - was trying a few 'hacks' but didn't think of this one! Legend

  4. Hi Maxime,

    I can't get it to work. I've downloaded code snippets and added the code as "php".

    For some reason my heading just disappears when I add the css-class and load the page.

    Cheers 🙂

    1. Hey Ben!

      Sorry about that. I made an update to the code recently and it looks like while doing that WP auto formatting broke the markup in my code snippets....

      I fixed it now, please just copy paste the code again and it should work!


  5. Hey Maxime!

    Absolutely love this code, it's a truly lovely effect.

    I have this small problem where the bottom of the g and y is cut off by the overflow: hidden part.

    So when the animation is finished, it should allow the overflow to become visible.

    A fix for this would make it a perfect 10/10.


      1. Thanks Maxime, should've looked closer!

        May I contact you to potentially commision custom work?

  6. Thanks for this! However once I've done this - the bottom of the letter 'g' is cut off by the mask. is there a fix to expand the mask at all? Thanks!
