    Text registration point


      Hello guys,


      I have a problem with centering an editable text in edge animate. When the text is being changed it does not start from the center of the symbol it will either start left or right.

      In flash I was able to have the text centered even when it was edited outside the text will still center no matter how long or short the words are.


      Anyone have any suggestions on this. I read about edge hero centering objects that is good but it does not seem to work for texts unless I am missing something.


      Thank you for all your help. I appreciate it.

          Have you triedsetting the

          1. width of the text element to 100%;

          2. enable text-align: center;


          Its also difficult to determine where your symbol is relative to the rest of your project file! Otherwise, combine the above two options and see what happens.

            Hi, Conf-


            You can also use point text instead of a text box.  In order to use point text, just click with the text tool instead of drawing a box, and your text box should change to the size of your text.


            Hope that helps!

              I will try your versions as well but I was able to figure it out using edgehero class. It seems to work fine so far. I will give your versions a try as well just in case it works too.
