Alignment of Element text (appearance)
« on: April 20, 2015, 07:49:00 pm »
In all my  activity elements the text aligns to the bottom of the element, meaning that the upper part of the element remains unused / empty. I would like to change this alignment, thus make use of the complete area of the element. Please enlighten me?

Just make the element narrower.

Making the element more narrow does not help; the only effect is that less text fits in the element.
I would like to use the complete area of the element.

Ah! You're using the BPMN Activity. That has a shape script. You could alter that but I don't know whether BPMN has any format restrictions.

ok thanks, shape scripting seems a bit too technical for me so I guess there's no solution that fits me available.
