solution with repro case

a Xamarin ContentPage is bound to a custom viewmodel

the page contains 3 buttons, 1 of which is bound to a Command on the viewmodel

this bound button also binds its Text property to a property on the viewmodel, so that we can control the button caption from the viewmodel

now, when this button text property changes in the viewmodel (and the corresponding text caption on the button as well), and the user subsequently clicks on any of the 2 other buttons, the caption for those 2 other buttons changes from centered to left aligned text. This does not seem normal

Btw, the text on the bound button remains centered as before and behaves correctly

I have checked this issue and able to reproduce this with attached sample
project. To reproduce this issue we follow the given above steps.
I have observed that When we clicks a button,other button's label moves from a center alignment to a left alignment.
