Hi guys , first of all I have to admit that I am new to After Effects and that I have been playing with the interface for the last weeks.

In general when I work in any text editor (like notepad) I usually type the text and it goes from left to right , leaving the initial text on the position it was before.To illustrate what I mean :

Photoshop behaves as expected :

Now , when I go to after effects , this is what happens :

As you can see , as I type the text moves to the left instead of moving to the right as most text editors do.

If it helps , this is the configuration of my text layer :

In general I donĀ“t know how to explain well the problem in technical words , but that's basically what happens. If I paste a text in that layer,I need to move the text back to it's initial position.

I would like to be able to create some sort of margin to avoid this to happen.

Change the layer's PARAGRAPH settings. They're currently right-justified. Your options are right, center or left justified.
