Inconsistent vertical position of vertical line's Center Annotation when "Always Horizontal" checked

Hello, I think I found a bug with vertical lines in Dorico 5. I’m trying to make a vertical bracket with some text that is upright, positioned vertically in the center of the line, and horizontally to the right. However, I found that I could not achieve that when I set those settings accordingly in the Edit Lines window.

Specifically, if a vertical line has a Center Annotation with Always horizontal checked, the vertical position of the annotation is below center when Horizontal position is set to Right, and above center when set to Left. (It is correct when set to Centered.)

Indeed, this isn’t working completely correctly. I’ve made a note of this and we will look at it in future.
