Center en masse Text Layers' anchor point?
on Dec 16, 2012 at 9:56:41 pm

I have many many Text Layers (programmatically generated) that I would like to have their Anchor Points centered.

How might I do that en masse? (All at once?)

Thanks!

To center to the layer both horizontally and vertically you could use the script from BatchFrame to move anchor points:

Found here: http://www.batchframe.com/extras/

Of course this requires you to select the layers (multiple if required) then apply the new anchor point.

If you are using a script to generate the text layers (you did mention "programatically") then why not set the anchor point in the script using the layer's width and height divided by 2 to find the center?

Thanks for that pointer.

It would be superior to alter the TEXT>>LAYERS script I'm using to generate the comp, but I'm very new at scripting and didn't want to get embroiled in a big mess. Perhaps it's very simple.

THANKS!
