You're completely right about this, Jade. The link that the moderator gives you for a "similar issue" is not this issue at all. I still haven't found a solution for this, and I honestly do not understand the logic for having designed the program this way in the first place. There is an arbitrary padding around the text inside the bounding box so that you have to either eyeball the alignment or other inefficient workarounds, or convert the text to a path to get accurate placement... then, of course, you can no longer change the font or any other font-related properties. I don't understand this, and I truly hope we see a solution to this.
spot-on, Jade. I thought i was doing something wrong but clearly not. To be honest this renders XD next to useless and they really should sort it out. Ridiculous. Blow adding it to a feature request list it's a basic requirement!
