Align text box by baseline
I would like to line up text of different sizes not in the same point text frame on the baseline rather than have the text align to the supposed bounding box. Illustrator does it right. See the screenshots attached to see what the difference is. Browsers align to the text baseline, so XD should handle it the same way without me needing to draw a line to do it. It’s a waste of time.
This should be how it already works, honestly. It's very frustrating that there is so little consistency across Adobe's products.
Single line text should align to text baseline. Text boxes should align to bottom of the box. That simple.

When designing in XD when i align fonts below each other they are not aligned with the font baseline. With this the problem happens is in design the distance is different and then while developing the distance looks either more or less. They gray line is the baseline for the font while the blue area shows in xd and aligns with respect to that.

In the XD screenshot, the red line is the large text baseline, and the cyan line is the text bounding boxes, which is how the program lines up all text objects.
