BCC 7, vegas pro 10..

Question about the text editor in BCC7 / 3d text

It seems that text can only be aligned along the bottom. For example, I have some text set at size 60, and I want one word in the middle of the sentence to be size 100, then back to size 60. The text is aligned along the bottom line of the text, so all text grows up from the bottom of the text. Is it possible to have the text align itself with the top of the text, so that all letters appear to 'grown down' from the top of the text:



I could do it by having two separate text items - one at 60 and 1 at 100, but I am rotating the text, so it would more preferable if this could be done via some setting in one text item.

Thank you.

No, but you could use the Baseline parameter on the 100 text to align it to the top of the 60 text. Like this:



Here is the parameter I used:



Hope this helps,

indeed... I really do need to stop trying to make things so difficult for myself - that does it perfectly...

Thank you...
