Question animating text

hi there
i have made my text: now how do i animate it?
even when i try to move it using the move tool the text appears to break apart.
i intend to use the text as my intro to a short animation for uni.
any suggestions would be great.
thanks.

hello

i did the same thing for a opening for a childrens tv programme on my media course. im not sure if you created the text yourself or made it using the create text function. but try deleting its history and grouping the pieces of the letters if they are in seperate pieces. this should help you to animate them seperately or as a complete group of text.

hope that helps.
could you post the finished intro
