Vertical alignment in text fields

Post by pderocco » Tue Sep 18, 2018 7:24 am

We have left, centered, and right justification, why not top, centered, and bottom for the vertical position? This would be very useful when text fields are resized, since one often wants their contents to be centered in both dimensions.

I vote for this as well. It is tedious to use the margin properties of a field to "find", say, the vertical center of a field's text, and this has to be readjusted if one changes the textSize.
