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.

        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.

        it's a shame it's not available... all super duper grid feature breaks apart, as soon you have some a bit more text... and buttons?... Vertical alignment is as crucial as horizontal... so please, oh, please! Add it!

        Seriously, WTF?! I just googled thinking that this option must be hidden, only to find it doesn't exist. Looks like I'll be sticking with Figma. What a joke.

        +1 for this. I'm finding more and more stuff that XD is missing out on, and should easily be implemented.

        C'mon Adobe.

        What does backlog mean?

        This is a very basic very needed functionality!

        eg.
        In a repeat grid, some text boxes with a title will take two lines. Some only take 1 line. All the ones with one line need to be floating in the middle of the text box, but now they are stuck to the top!!

        Honestly guys, I can live with plugins to control text transform and such, but having vertical alignment really is a must. Help a brother out

        This should be dragged to the top of your backlog or, even better, added to your next sprint. I'm really wanting to like XD and make it part of the workflow but the absence of basic features like this are forcing me to consider abandoning the application and go back to my previous tool.

        No vertical alignment of text (uppercase/lowercase neither...) but voice recognition ? Serious ?

      • nati commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        heeeeeeello? voice prototyping, that like 90% of people do not need, but not a vertical alignment? so saaaad....

        Adding vertical alignment is very useful in the case of say creating a Button or Banner asset that you want the text to be vertically centered inside. This works at present if the text in subsequent instances of that asset are the same number of lines. What happens when you reach 2 lines or more? Manually aligned text is no longer in the middle of the asset, it's uneven. A naive response would be that you can just manually align the text, but you can't do this because it's in an Asset. A second naive response is that you just make your all your design content the same length. Ungrouping the Asset and manually aligning "solves" the issue, but means you now have a maintenance nightmare on your hands.

        This is a really important feature that is needed for pixel perfect design.

        Not implementing these kinds of functions is unacceptable for professionals and is a reason to choose for apps like sketch.
