Vertical Alignment of text in text box
Ability to align text to the top/middle/bottom of the text box. I'm sure you've already got the horizontal alignment options covered in your checklist.
And bottom alignment!
I am trying XD for the first time while working with a client that cannot use Sketch files. Within the first 10 minutes, I noticed you can't vertically align text within an area. This is a dealbreaker, as many of my components rely on that.

AHEM. Not having this breaks repeat grids

I agree that this feature is key to accelerate the design.
For example, let's take a text inside a text box with font size 32px and line height 38px. In Adobe XD, the text is align to the top of the textbox. In html the text is by default vertically centered. In order to match my design in Adobe XD with the html, in Adobe XD I need to manually move down the text box by 0.5 * (38px - 32px) = 3px, to match with the html so it's really a pain.
Figma has this feature, where you can choose vertical alignment to bottom, center or top.
Has this been fixed yet?

How on earth does it take 2+ years to develop this feature?
Such a simple feature...if this doesn't get added, I'm going back to Sketch.
Not having this simple feature makes really difficult to design based on a 8 pt grid, for example. Even if we can resize the area text, the text itself doesn't get centered. It's really, really important to have this.
Having a field to the line height would be great also.

Whilst the repeat grid feature is great, it really falls down when I have to break it apart just to manually vertically centre text because the feature isn't available.
+1 is badly needed!
YES. This feature is fully supported by browsers via CSS styles now.
If AdobeXD would facilitate vert alignment for textboxes it would be a significant workflow improvement.

Just upgraded to make use of components. Came up against this issue within the first 10 minutes.

vertical alignment - please -
Well as I have to show this to a client I'm not going to waste any more of my time.
I can't say to them that "the text will be centered vertically when I do it properly"
