the work around that I found for text disappearing after some pastes is copying text layer from Eran's project to my project.

I have tried your technique for this tutorial, however when pasting the text to complete the 1000px x 1000px composition it allows me to fill about half of the composition with text and as soon as I paste another set of text all of it disappears. Any ideas????

Using this method is not possible. In order to assemble an image using a still image or video it's recommended to use a plugin like Trapcdoe Form. There's a third tutorial here which explains how to achive this. Instead composition of literature you'll need to put together a composition consisting of stills, The duration of each should be a single frame and all must be the same size.

Is it possible to use changing images instead of numbers? How might I do that? Thank you again for all your wonderful tutorials
