Component text jumping up

Hey Figma community - is anyone having issues with text jumping up the frame on click?

What’s happening is the following:

  1. I have design system components and my own components in a spec file, including inputs, buttons, etc. A lot of these instances have text props
  2. Clicking on the text, or even the component makes the text layer jump up. This is affecting text in auto layout too, where it will jump 1 or 2 times above the frame bounds of the box
  3. Only fix I have without resetting, is setting the text layer to align middle
  4. Otherwise I’m resetting all and reconfiguring my component

Is anyone else dealing with this issue? If so, have you fixed it? Or what are your work arounds?

Outline mode image for example, but you can see the top tab bar’s text has “jumped” up, while the fresh instance has everything on its baseline

Also having this issue. It seems to be related to components with text layers (both local and in external library).

Detaching the component temporarily resolves the issue (you can undo the detach after it is resolved), but it seems to happen again even after the temporary resolution. I’ve submitted a support request as well, just adding a +1 here.
