Allow 3d Text to be constrained vertically

Allow 3d Text to be constrained vertically

3d Text provides edge and center reference planes.  However, when trying to constrain text to the center of the text vertically the constraints break, likely because the text sees itself as top aligned.  Model Text needs to be able to be dynamically constrained to the the center of things, either by adding a vertical align parameter or by correcting whatever breaks when trying to constrain it otherwise.

Example: A family with identifying text which might need to be 2" or 3" high.  The text can be constrained to the center vertically, but if the text size changes or the text content changes the constraints break.

Thanks for taking the time to submit your idea. Unfortunately, this idea did not get the support of the community over the last 6 months and as such we will not be pursuing it at this time. Please feel free to rework (titles and clear descriptions are really important) and resubmit this one down the road.

This request should be resubmitted.

 

And if it already is, this old suggestion is top search result and Ican't find other submissions.

If someones does submit a new one please link to it from here too so we can find it.

 

This should be fixed. Even if only a few encounter it and supports this feature it it is a really annoying bug in Revit.

@Jim_Melin  Ok, I resubmitted it here: https://forums.autodesk.com/t5/revit-ideas/constrain-3d-text-vertically/idi-p/9830978 

 

It is very annoying when dealing with model text.
