Artistic Text Alignment issue (ascenders and descenders)

Recommended Posts

Hi y'all,

Again, probably a niche issue but when working with small artistic text labels, it happens that text may not contain ascenders or descenders. Aligning these texts is tricky as Designer will take the borders and is not aware of the base line of the font.

Here are the same texts aligned middle,  top and bottom:

And in OSX Catalina. Pull down a guide, snap the baseline, not the bounding box.

Betas as they happen...

Is there any way to get 'space vertically' to work correctly with artistic text when some have descending characters and others don't?
