text and null point

Postby pillhuhn on 03/8/2009, 7:57 am

hi
I do not know if that is the correct translation to this point I mean
if I create a textlayer the null point is at the beginning of the word
how can I manage it that this point is in the middle of the written word
thanks

Also, you might need to move the anchor point of the text. To do this, select the "pan behind" tool (its at the top with rotate, mask, select tools etc), then you can grab the anchor point and move it wherever you want and this will be the pivot point for any rotation and the centre point for scaling.
