Text value not aligned with text caption

Update:10-11Source: network consolidation

Hello,
In my text fields, the text value is always slightly raised from the text caption. Is there a way to get them to align?
Thanks,
Gail

Hi Geo,
I have tried top, middle, and bottom alignment and although they give different results, none are actually aligned with the caption text.
The top and middle alignments still have the value text raised above the caption text.
The bottom alignment gives a puzzling result of the value text being sunk below the caption text and actually somewhat cut off at the bottom.
For some of my text boxes I have thrown together a work-around solution for this by setting the baseline shift for the value text to -3pt. Although this does seem to work, I don't imagine this is how the program was INTENDED to be used and I'd like to understand how to get the text aligned without having to tweak baselines.
Any ideas or suggestions are welcome.
Thanks,
Gail
