In Motion 3, I can't really understand why after creating a basic element, like a text layer is the anchor point always anywhere but in the middle of the layer. The reason I find this frustrating is when I apply I camera behavior to zoom in on the text, is uses the layer's anchor as the area that it should focus on
The default position of a text layer's anchor point is determined by the text's justification: left, center or right. The default justification is left. You can change the justification in the HUD or the Inspector. The anchor point for other object types is typically the center of the object (images, etc).
