Description Jordan Roselle 2015-12-01 15:15:57 UTC
I have a label that is significantly taller than the text it contains. I have verified it is the size I expect by setting the background color. Since upgrading to text does not seem to be respecting alignment. I changed everything from the old YAlign to the new VerticalTextAlignment but the text is always at the start, even when I set it to center or end.

On Android the text is aligned as expected.

A reproduction project would be much appreciated in helping to investigate the issue.
Comment 2 Jordan Roselle 2015-12-01 16:50:14 UTC
Full example project can be found here: http://1drv.ms/1LLJIPu

If you run the app on Windows you will see a green box, which is the label, with the text at the top of the green box. If you run the app on Android the welcome text will be correctly centered in the green box.

The code that is changed:
public App ()
			// The root page of your application
			MainPage = new ContentPage {
				Content = new StackLayout {
					VerticalOptions = LayoutOptions.Center,
					Children = {
						new Label {
                            HeightRequest = 100,
                            BackgroundColor = Color.Green,
                            VerticalTextAlignment = TextAlignment.Center,
							Text = "Welcome to Xamarin Forms!"
