Continuum Title Studio Horizontal Spacing issue

I am having difficulty trying to set the spacing between words on separate lines within the Title Editor.
I’ve been able to acquire some result closer to what I’m trying to achieve by changing the Style Scale and Leading attributes but neither of them nor any other attributes that I’ve experimented with seem to get the result I am after. I’ve highlighted each word as well as all of the lines of text collectively (which actually takes all other text in consideration and makes adjustments relative to other text which is not what I want) but nothing is working as expected.

If I had each word within the Title Studio be a separate instance on a different video track; I could probably move the objects on the timeline individually and have better control and preciseness but I don’t want to do that to simply close horizontal gaping between lines. Here is a screenshot of the area I’m viewing and working in.

What should I do to control the horizontal spacing for each line (individually)? Another way of explaining, if I were working within MS Word this would be called line spacing.



The feature that you’re describing is actually called leading and it should be functioning as designed. To use it, just change the value in the Leading parameter - you don’t need to select any lines as the feature is page based, not selection based - and keep your eye on the Composite Window to see the changes because the characters will not overlap each other in the text generator window (by design).

If you are still having trouble using it I can create and share a video screencap showing you how to use the feature.


Hello Peter,

Thanks for the response. I did try that as I indicated in my post but it doesn’t work as “I’d expected” because it appears to move the spacing relative to the other text but not in a proportionate manner.

Please see the attached video as I move the Leading value the spacing between the text elements do change but if you note that the word “for” seems to be disregarded within context of the other text above and below. That’s why I was trying to perhaps use that feature and select only the word “for” to control it independently though to your point it is apparently page based and makes no difference.

What might I be doing wrong here?

Hi, I deleted my comment earlier because I reread the post & realised I didn’t really understand it, moving words individually or horizontal line spacing?
Anyway what I found was when I first launch TS, I add text to the box the Leading control doesn’t work straight away, after text is highlighted then the Leading control works,

I think part of the confusion is that you mentioned MS Word, in that the lines are static, you increase the gap of one line & all the ones below move down, the lines above stay in place, they’re fixed, but TS is different, when you increase the Leading/space it just increases the space in between, one gets pushed up the other goes down,

Try highlighting the word ‘for’ & just use Style Baseline

Also if you highlight a line then change the Leading or baseline settings those will stay with that selection, highlight each word/line & see what is set, yo might find that your words are all over the place compared to where they were originally, for instance your first pic shows a baseline of -28, is that for all text or just a highlighted section.

The word ‘for’ staying in the middle is just a bit of an optical illusion, it stays because of how you highlighted it.

PS. your video & pic above doesn’t really show what is happening without your description which could be misinterpreted, a full view of the interface is better to understand what is going on,:+1:

Yep, you’ve hit the proverbial nail on the head there Gid! :slight_smile:

This is what I was after. Thanks! That said, I suppose I hadn’t actually tried everything to get the result I was targeting.

Hi, the extrusion always heads towards the centre, the Rotate Interactor will change the direction
but can that centre/target be moved?


Hi Gid,

So if you select the extruded text track and go to the Shape Position Control panel, you’ll see an option for Rotation Pivot - set that to Independant and you’ll have the ability to set the point in 3D space around which the rotation of that object should occur. You can do the same thing for scale by setting the Scale Anchor point to Independant.

I hope this helps!
