    Unable to center text when scaling font size

    Hi guys,

     

    I can't center my text whenever I scale the font size. This is because the red object doesn't move to the center, it stays there, and when I try to move it on my own, it's unable to do it.

     

    Look at this: https://gyazo.com/04850654b436e9bcd8b3323422bba3b4

    Don't try to move the title by clicking on the little red adjustment square, move it by clicking anywhere inside the red box.

    Also, because I'm not sure I understand what you're trying to do, if you want to center the text in the red box rather than moving the text, adjust the box using one of the corner resize boxes, and then click on the 'Align Center' button in the tool bar at the top.

    Or if you're trying to center the text in the box and then center the box on the screen, use the 'Align Center' button like I described above, then use View > Toolbars > Object Editing to show the Object Editing toolbar, and use the centering and alignment buttons to put the title where you want it.

    I tried all of these but it doesn't work. If I scale up a text and then try to center the text in the middle, the red line is not centered with the text so it won't center properly: https://gyazo.com/0a9ce85a05b07211eacfa90b35ee3e84

    No, you didn't. I said:

    if you want to center the text in the red box ... adjust the box using one of the corner resize boxes, and then click on the 'Align Center' button in the tool bar at the top.

    You didn't adjust the size of the box after resizing the text. Marquee only 'knows' where the red box is. You resized the text but not the box. Then you clicked the button to center align, so Marquee centered the box.

    Instead, do this:

    1. Resize the text.

    2. Resize the box so it surrounds the text.

    3. Click 'center align'.

    That should work.

    If I do that the top part of the red box doesn't want to go around the text, the text automatically goes under the red box when changing the top one: https://gyazo.com/c4cd05fe68493ae67c46ddca15fd7c23

     

    I know I could just try and put TEST in the middle of the red box, but then you don't know for sure if it's 100% in the middle.

    I don't know of a way to center the text vertically within the box other than what I've already described.

    Okay, I don't think anyone will notice the difference but I like to make everything as perfect as it can be :P
