Description Russell Corbin 2017-10-08 13:15:00 UTC
Latest Xamarin.Forms.Nuget package broken. Last known working version is

Create blank app, add the following: 
<Entry Placeholder="Test text" HorizontalOptions="Center" VerticalOptions="Center" WidthRequest="200" HeightRequest="40" />

Placeholder text is vertically aligned to bottom whereas normal text is center aligned.
Setting vertical alignment through renderer does not work either.

Should be fixed in 2.4.0 SR2. Thank you!

Is it included in 2.5 pre?
Comment 4 Paul DiPietro [MSFT] 2017-10-24 16:31:07 UTC
There was some accidental shuffling around of the broken code for some reason, so it will be in what I assume is the very next release. A PR is already up and it should be in soon.

This doesn't appear to be fixed in 2.4.0 SR3 ( I have a sample project using Xamarin.Forms here: https://drive.google.com/open?id=1LWNk5k-okMdzfp90ACgLy6ztypFuZyu-

I'm still seeing the same issue. Am I missing something?
