  • 1.  Moving text by pixel instead of space bar

    Posted 03-06-2024 15:20

    Hi all!

    Is there a way to move a word/text line etc by pixel instead of using space bar?

    I don't have access to an Xpression keyboard at the moment so I'm thinking I need that.

    Also I need some help creating a credits crawl right to left.

    I can do one line but the issue I have is the top line is the job title and the line underneath is the name of the person.

    eg..

    Operator          Persons 2                            Person 3

    Mark                Person 2 and Person 3        Person 3

    I'm having 2 issues. The names are not always the same length. I have tried using different text objects for each job title but how do I make the job after appear in the right place?

    Thanks if anyone can help!

    You go into layout to move things pixel by pixel when designing normally?  

    Normally on the sequence side, you are just entering data and a correctly built template aligns itself as required automatically. 

    However if this is a requirement just publish the other fields you need to be able to control such as x and y positions and they will show up in sequence.
