You can't align the text to the bottom of a field. If you want it to sit on top of a pre-drawn line you'll need to adjust the field's location and height manually to achieve it.

In 2022, this still doesnt work! Its just bonkers that Adobe doesnt offer the ability to align to the bottom of a field without moving the entire field. Just bonkers!

I know, I'm super frustrated that I can't adjust the text on the bottom line, it's like it's floating at the top of my field. I just spent time watching YouTube tutorials and no one addresses this issue. ugh

Thanks. It was slow, but I did the first step, then Closed the Form view, and then manually selected each field, hit Ctrl-E, More, and then adjusted the vertical alignment.

Hi, I've tried this but each time I close the properties option, it reverts back to the default top alignment. Is there a workaround so that I can prepare the form with the text aligned to the bottom at all times?
