I used to know how to do this, but I can't remember and I can't find it in the help system, or with a web search. When I create a text layer in a composition (say, for making a motion lower third), text automatically flows from the entry point as I type. But... it flows to the left. That is, the "cursor" or entry point sits unmoving in the center of the field, and as I type text pushes out to the left. I want the opposite -- I want text to flow to the right. How do I set that up in AE cs6?
Mess with the text layer's Paragraph settings: justify left, right or center. Happiness ensues.
