editing the default archicad title

Hello again, i'm trying to edit the default ArchiCAD title so we can have a more personalized one, but i can't find where i can change the alignment of the title text and the scale text in its GDL code.




I found where to change its position, but i can't seem to find where the alignment is. Can a kind soul help me here?

That would be in a text style definition. Look for the following code (or something similar):


define style "styleDrawingScale" gs_drawing_scale_font_type,
anchorDrawScale is the variable you are interested. It uses a code derived from a 9-square box. The value 1 means a text bounding box is anchored in upper-left corner. 9 means text is anchored in lower-right corner. 5 means the text box is anchored in the very center, vertically and horizontally, of the text bounding box. I'm sure you can figure out the remainder.
