Align Text on the Bottom of UILabel
« on: January 12, 2015, 11:10:30 PM »
Hi,

With the UILabel script I can obviously Left-align, right-align, and center, but I can't figure how to bottom align it. Meaning that the bottom of the text touches the bottom of the UILabel. I would think that changing the pivot to bottom would have that effect, but no such luck.

Any ideas?

the font size must be a decent amount smaller than the height of the widget.

if that doesnt help, check your anchors.

Pretty much what devomage said. Pivot set to bottom, bottom-left or bottom-right will make the text start at the bottom, unless you have a newline in there.
