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.

    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.

    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.

    Can<t beleive this request was not done while you did the horizontal alignment wizard :/

    i need vertical alignment in text boxes for adobe XI too!
    Can anyone help??

  • Matt commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    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"

    Project aborted.

    Sketch supports this functionality, so some Sketch designs are incorrectly aligned when opening them on XD. It seems like a very easy feature to implement which would end a lot of headaches for XD users

    Move this to the top of your backlog pleaaaaase. These basic features are all dealbreakers.

    Yeah what's up with this! Can't make a table with text using repeat grid if I can't have vertical text alignment. Forced to break apart the repeat grid as a result, which defeats the point of the repeat grid feature.
