Hello, I've a problem with my AE. I want to center my anchor point in text, that works but when i'm going to change tracking amount to animate it, my anchor point stays in the middle but my text moves to the left side.. Can anyone help me?
You probably want to change Left Align Text to Center Text in the Paragraph panel.
If you're using a Text Animator, you'll want to expand Text then expand More Options and set the Anchor Point Grouping and Grouping Alignment as needed.
Thanks Men its Help full

This. This solved it! Thank you!
Did Warren's suggestion help at all?
Let us know.
When you write "tracking", I am assuming you are alluding to the Text Animator Property, tracking. If I am correct then take note that tracking does not change the Anchor Point; even though it may look like it does. The Anchor Point remains independent of the tracking effect.
Take note that when applying the Tracking Text Animator Property, it is highly advisable to also apply the Line Anchor Text Animator Property. The Line Anchor Text Animator Property defines where the tracking effect will be anchored - again, this anchoring occurs independent from the layer's Transform > Anchor Point property.
The relevant and easily recalled values you should take note with Line Anchor is as follows - (1) at 0%, tracking is anchored to the left of the text string; (2) at 50%, the default value, tracking is anchored in the middle of the text string; and (3) at 100%, tracking is anchored at the extreme end of the text string. Values relative to these will of course lead to analogous results.
Thanks Warren! You helped me a lot!
