[Christopher McDonell] "I have to enter new x coordinates if I want it justified to the same left margin"

thats not right, you must be doing something wrong, (or I'm misunderstanding?)
i just made a left justified title with a shot name,
copied it, and made the name longer, and it maintains it;s left margin.

this is how i do this sort of this, by COPYING a saved template.

so set up a city-name title to be the way you prefer.
copy it into a new timeline (called "titles" or whatever), and NAME the text generator CITY
next time you need to place some city text,
go to your titles sequence, copy the city text generator, paste it into your edit sequence
then open it and edit the text.
the style will remain.

but if in future you need to isolate just the city text, you've named it "City" so a simple find in the timeline will jump you from one to the next, and a find-all will find them all,

a couple of notes: using the sequence to sort them is better than a bin.
the clips in the bin can become master clips, and if you re-name or colour one, they all change.
ok that was just one note.

hope that helps
