    Hello. First time posting here.
    I’ve built a basic lower third (AE1). The box is responsive so its size is dependent on the length of the Name/Title, whichever is longer (AE2 + AE3). I want to create a checkbox control that will allow a mogrt user to choose whether or not the lower third shows up on the left or right side of the screen. Easy enough, right? Well, HERE IS MY ISSUE.
    The right lower third ends up growing paste safe guides and potentially off screen (AE4).
    The lwr 3rd on the left side works fine, because the text/boxes are left aligned/anchored to that location. BUT, for the box on the right side, I still want the Name and Title to be left aligned, but I need the text, and box, to move left as the box grows. The goal being that the right side of the blue box is always. “locked” to a position on the screen. in this case, the vertical dotted line with red arrows point at it in the screenshot (AE5).
    Make sense? Suggestions?
    Thanks in advanced!
