Why are the ellipsis for truncated text vertically centered?

When a text element is set to a fixed width with truncation, the ellipsis is vertically centered.

Is this a bug, or am I missing some setting/option that would display the ellipsis at the baseline of the text, like… ?

sounds like a bug… do you have a screenshot? It seems to work fine on my end.

Here’s a screenshot of the text element with vertically centered ellipsis and the text control panel.

Hi @Erik_Wingren, Thank you for reaching out and sharing your screenshot. I understand that you may find this situation strange.

I tested it on my end and was able to reproduce this behavior using the font [Noto Sans JP].

So it might be related to the specific font you are using. Could you please try using different fonts and check the ellipsis position?

I hope to hear from you soon! And if any other community members have any insights or suggestions, please feel free to jump in!

Spot on! Switching the font to regular Noto Sans did the trick. Thanks for the help!
