Is there a way to align the content in a cell to the middle-center? I want the "Designation" and "%" to be in the midle of the cell header:

Hi @MapsterMind 

@DanPatterson is correct in that there are no commands or options in the UI that specifically align text vertically within a cell of a Table Frame or within the bounds of a "paragraph" text element (rectangle text, circle text, etc...).

For a "one-off" table frame you might want to consider offsetting the Y value of the Heading text for select fields/columns. This may work if you do not plan on changing the header values.  If the values change you may need to adjust manually.

Here is a screenshot that helps illustrate this workaround.

Hope this helps,
