Please explain alignment in Figma to me

What’s the deal with trying to align objects in Figma? I have two objects in a frame: a text box and a rectangle. No matter what layer order I put them in, no matter what order I select these two objects, the rectangle ALWAYS aligns to the text, when I want the text to align to the rectangle. This drives me absolutely insane in Figma. In Adobe Illustrator I can EASILY select what I want to align: objects, including the key object to align to, or art-boards. Why can’t Figma give me this functionality?

Hi David, would you mind sharing your file and describing what you’re trying to do? I’m happy to help if you could provide more context on your usecase.
