Hi All,

I'm creating a text field that will be edited in FCP, but the length of text in this field will change. Is there a way to make it when a new line is added to the text, all the lines moves up to make room for the new one, thus the bottom line of text is always the same vertical position.

Thanks,
Stephen

Set the Layout Method (Text > Layout) to paragraph and set the Vertical Alignment (Text > Format) to bottom.

Thanks for the reply.

I cannot find the Vertical Alignment option in Format. I'm only using Motion 4, this isn't a new feature of Motion 5 is it.

Thanks,
Stephen
