Hi guys the problem I'm having is probably a silly one but for the life of me i cant figure it out. I have made a 3d text layer and up until now i have been able to move the anchor point to individual corners and have the text rotate tight around the anchor point but now when i do this the text is taking a wide line around the anchor point even though it is right in the corner. very grateful for any input.

Check your Z position of the anchor point. It might look right in the corner in the active camera view, but if it's moved way back in Z-space, the rotation will look wonky. Check it numerically and in the top or side view.

It is easier to destroy than to create.
More fun, too.
