Pick center of text field, not only of the individual lines

When moving texts I often want to place them right in the center of another object, e. g. a rectangle.

When manipulating objects like circles, ellipses, rectangles, polygons etc. I can pick their very center.
If texts span over more than one line I can only pick the center of the individual lines but not the very center of the whole text array.

Idea: please enable picking the very center of a multi-line text.

  • Understood. Just thought I would throw it out there. It is a good idea. I thought you could use Nearest snap on the multi-line text element to grab the center, but that is not the case. Nearest snap works on a single line of text. I've used that a lot to rotate text by 3 points.
