I'm trying to link 2 text layers with expressions, so that the text on both layers will stay the same. The trouble is that the paragraph formatting of the linked text is always centered. I want the paragraph formatting to be the same as the source. How to do that?
Paragraph alignment is a text base property not related to expressions, hence you must set it correctly for the layer using the text palette.
I recreated the composition, and it was working properly. The previous composition was starting to act funny, and the linked text did not update. Something must have gone wrong there.
