    Left align text anchor point in After Effect

    VIZOR

      Hello. sorry if this question was very noovy, but I need to left align many text layers. Thus, I want to place my anchor point at left edge of the text. Since I need to be able to change the text and achieve the same effect, I would like to place the anchor point at the left edge using an expression.

       

      I used something like

       

      x = 0;

      Y = this.sourceRectAt().height/2;

       

      [X,Y]

       

      However, small, seemingly random offset is throwing me off. How can I align my text anchor point to the left edge?

       

      Thanks in advance!
