Long time FCP editor, Motion virgin. I am going through the tutorial on Motion 3, all is going swimmingly, except when moving a text layer around, the handy yellow dynamic guides are missing, and I miss them. They are activated in the view pulldown in the canvas window. It doesn't seem to matter if the safe zones and/or grid are on or off. Could my little yellow friends be disabled somewhere else, unbeknownst to me, being a virgin and all? (Studio 2, G5 dual 2.5, OS 10.5.1)
Dynamic Guides may not appear when Motion is first installed and opened. If Dynamic Guides do not appear by default, press the N key two times. The N key turns snapping on and off for the Dynamic Guides.
