Position objects relative to a dynamic text box using expressions
on Sep 29, 2019 at 9:43:33 pm

I have a dynamic shape box which resizes to match the content of a text box. I need to align a number of objects to the shape layer as it expands. How do I pin these objects in position as the shape box expands?

For example:
1. First object aligns to the left side of the box
2. Second object aligns to the top left of the box
3. Third object (text) right aligns to bottom right of box

The original text and shape uses these expressions:

But I am not sure how to add the potions of the other elements to this.
Thanks in advance for any help.

Hey Ben, in the past there was a similar request with crosses, which most likely you could adapt for your scenario (by replacing shapes in the corners to your own objects)
