Thanks Mark. I am working predominantly with text objects--is there a way to set a default for those? The only option I have figured out is in the inspector manually dragging the values until the anchor point seems to line up visually. I tried selecting the anchor point tool and dragging but that doesn't seem to work either.
Yeah, see, I'm not getting what you show. For me, the positioning arrows are some distance from the text box. Hence my query. (Motion is on my work computer, else I'd share a sceen capture of what I'm seeing. I can do so on Monday.)
