I have a variable card I'm setting up. The persons name will be centered aligned. The title will be directly underneath and right aligns under their name. See sample.

 

Is there a way to keep the title in this position as the name shrinks or growns in length?

 

I can achieve this with an auto sizing box and variable width. Problem is when I have a name too big it sizes beyond my trim. If I limit the width then I get overset text. My variable data program will size the text to fit but it doesn't not work correctly when using the auto sizing boxes.example.png

One thing which came to my mind would be to anchor a second text frame with the "Title" after the name and set the anchor to right align it.
And you would have to make sure the anchor mark doesn't get replaced when inserting your data.
