Using Align-To to Move text position
on Apr 16, 2020 at 4:35:53 pm

I know how to use Align-To but cannot get what should be a simple task to work.

I want to use a fly-out of text from the side text effect plug-in for FCPX, but it's user-input text so I cannot know the length of the text in advance. But I want the text to fly-out from the side of the frame just enough to show all the text.

I have one text field inside a group.

I have an enclosing group that, when selected, will show the current width of the text field inside and I thought I could put an align to on the enclosing folder to move by aligning with the right end of the text field.

But I guess is a recursive loop to make a folder move in sync with the right end of an ecnlosed text field

Any thoughts?
