This preset will allow a text layer to be pinned on the left or right side of another text layer. You can control which symbol you wish to use, if any. You can also control the padding and left or right alignment.
This preset is useful when you need a symbol to follow a text layer. For Example there are more characters when the price becomes greater but the symbol remains pinned to the the left. This preset will allow you to pin to the left or right side of a text layer.
TIP: If you do not wish to use a symbol select none on the symbol options dropdown menu.
Preset: "Pin Left or Right"
To Apply Pin Left or Right Preset:
- In a new composition, create your text layer.
- Next create another text layer, the second text layer will be the layer that follows on the either side of your first text layer.
- Then go to your effects and presets panel and locate the Indivio folder. Find the folder called pin to positioning and drag the preset called pin to left or right on to the text layer that you want to be pinned.
- Now with your preset on the text layer we need to change the layer control to find the layer it needs to follow. Once you do that, your layers are linked.
You can control which symbol you wish to use if any, the padding and left or right alignment.
The symbols that are available are: none, $, #, @, %, &, *, +, =, -
