Sometimes there is a time that you need text to be dynamically positioned next to certain element. For example, in our template below we want the price "$399" to be anchored next to "per pax" text.
Given that the price will change based on input from API, it is hard to position this statically without causing overlap especially if the price text can be very long.
Anchor To feature
To solve this problem, we added Anchor To field where you can select layer that can be set as the anchor.
This option can be found in Textbox's settings,
More options will pop out when anchor is selected
Layer that you want your current text box to be anchored to
Horizontal positioning relative to the anchor
Vertical positioning relative to the anchor
Horizontal offset to be applied
Vertical offset to be applied
Offset is useful to fine tune the position to the pixel.
Currently this option is only available for Text but you can anchor it to any other elements. It will be available on other components soon.

Anchor Y - Vertical Positioning
Testing Your Design
To make sure your design will work well with your expected inputs, you can try to generate several images through Console. Alternatively, you could also type in the text to ensure the positions are correct.
Anchored element position is fixed. If you are trying to anchor anything that is close to the edge, use the element nearest to the edge as the anchor. Otherwise, your text will be out of the canvas area.
✅ Use per pax as the anchor of the price. The price can expand while per pax is fixed
❌ Bad choice of anchor can cause item to overflow unexpectedly
