When you open the file - all you need to do is press the small play icon ▷ as per the first screenshot below - then in the 3D Viewport there will be a new Panel called "3D Names" - this contains all of the setup scripts to make this files effect work.

Step 2

As you can see above this is the new Panel that does all the hard work for us! We can add the bounce effect top the text as well as reset the scene.

3. Edit your text

Now click the text, and press the "Tab" key on your keyboard to edit the text, change this to "Your Text" or whatever you want, press the "Tab" key again to exit edit mode. Please note this effect only works with 1 line of text

Move the text using "G" key to grab, and then move it around, or "S" key to scale it! Make sure it fits within the red squares on each side

5. Run "Add Bounce" Button

Now that you have edited your text and positioned it, you can now press the "Add Bounce" button in the 3D Names Panel, this will add the animation to your text! It may take a minute to run, but once done, you can then press the "Play Animation" button to see the animation.

6. Check for artifacts

If you see any artifacts (weird lines or shapes) that shouldn't be there, then scrub over your animation and delete anything that doesn't look right. If you don't have any artifacts then great... you can skip this step!
