Centering text without extra white space

In October, I asked this question for the desktop version of AI. https://community.adobe.com/t5/illustrator-discussions/adjusting-bounding-box-size-of-text/m-p/12472...

I'm having the same problem for AI on the iPad. I can convert the text to outlines, but that means the text can no longer be edited and that is not a good option.

 

I can not center text or align it with another object without the extra space being taken into account. In Affinity, this is stupidly simple. Can someone point me in the right direction?

Hi there,

 

Thanks for reaching out. I am afraid this is not possible as of now. Alignment works on bounding boxes of the participating content. The text has a bigger bounding box to account for different glyph lines; hence there is a difference between live and outlined text. I would suggest if you could also post it here (https://illustrator.uservoice.com/forums/931888-illustrator-ipad-feature-requests). This way, you will keep getting all the updates related to this feature, and other users can also upvote, which would help us prioritize. Also, this is the best way of communicating with the Engineering and Product teams regarding issues and suggestions so they can be implemented in future releases.

Regards,
Anshul Saini

This seems like a huge oversight. 

Affinity Designer can do this on both desktop and iPad. Please add this ASAP.
