It will be nice to align the text vertically in the Textbox. You can do it now only by adjusting the font size and the height of the Textbox.

RE: Textbox vertical alignment

So many basic things missing from Power BI - this is one of those. Stop the new development and go back and fix the basic functionality.

This is very important and need to be added urgently.

Blows my mind that this is not possible, thought I was missing something obvious.

RE: Textbox vertical alignment

Totally agree this is a basic excel function.

This must be a really easy fix.

RE: Textbox vertical alignment

This is really basic. Don't waste developer time on fancy controls and cloud compatibility until you can do the basics that have been in Excel for decades. I know developers tend to value information over presentation but customers particularly managers (who pay for stuff) really value presentation. Vertical text alignment should be in all controls as standard.

RE: Textbox vertical alignment

I agree with Jared, just add all of the excel formatting options

RE: Textbox vertical alignment

in general, add all excel formatting options, this, freeze panes, colored tabs, any others people can think of.

RE: Textbox vertical alignment

In addition: in earlier versions (2018 Aug for instance) Power BI didn't even allow you to decrease the height of the textbox less than required for the chosen font size and make the text look middle-centered.

Please consider vertical aligning of the text.
