Ilir Beqiri shows a way to work with data on a single multiline text layer in Ae.

“In this tutorial, I try to explain what any serious motion designer should know when working on projects with multiple external text data in After Effects. Text can be an unlimited source for creativity and inspiration! But it’s not the only thing you need to think about – there are also expressions which allow us, designers, more control over how our titles look.”

Beqiri shows how to keep all your data written in a single multiline text and use one Shape Layer’s Groups to position them around. The demonstrations offer two examples, but the possibilities cover a wide range of applications for design-driven professionals who need flexibility with their layouts as well as those working on projects that don’t have tight timelines or budgets for creating custom toolsets from scratch every time there’s new information coming out!
