This preset will allow a text layer to be pinned on the left side of another text layer with controllable padding. For example a dollar symbol or hashtag symbol that needs to be formatted for a different text layer.
This preset is useful when you need a symbol or text layer to follow on the left side of another text layer. For Example there are more characters when the price becomes greater but the text layer remains pinned to the the left.
TIP: Use on a single line. Will be pinned based on the text box.
Preset: Left Padding
To Apply Left Padding Preset:
- In a new composition, create your text layer.
- Then create another text layer, the second text layer will be the layer that follows on the left side of your first text layer.
- 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 onto the text layer that you want to be pinned to the left.
- 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 the padding with the slider labeled left padding.
