Hi All,

I have set up a custom text animation preset and I'm wondering if there is a way to have the anchor point property in the text section update depending on how large your font point is.

Example: under text I have added an anchor point property. This is not animated, but using it as a pivot point so the text swings in. Problem is when I test this on another new text layer and use a different font size, say a smaller size, the anchor point is now way above the text.

I know I could save the preset with the source text included to have it show up the same size and then I could scale the text up or down, but is there a way to do this with an expression of some sort?

I hope I'm being clear enough. Thanks in advance for your help and time.
