I have a problem rotation a 3d text layer's y axis.

When I turn it for example 90 degrees, the position value doesn't change but the layer's position definately changes (i see it).

I want the center of the text to stay in the exact same position when I turn the text 90 degrees. How to do this?

You need to move the layers Anchor point to the center of the text.
This is the point that the layer rotates around.

You can do this without modifying the layers position by using the Pan Behind Tool.
Its the one that looks like a dotted line square with a target in the middle of it.
