Here's what I'd like to do.

textLayer.textItem.position[0] = 200;

I would expect this to change the x-coordinate of the text box to 200px from the canvas origin. The value does not get assigned. Anybody know what I'm missing?

I can recreate your scenario and I am not sure why it behaves this way. However, the following workaround is possible:

var y = textLayer.textItem.position[1];
textLayer.textItem.position = [200, y];

For some reason, the individual values of the UnitValue array are not mutable and we have to set position as a new array.

Thanks man! I'll use this workaround for now. –  Grant Jun 3 '13 at 19:04
