Text distance from the bottom of staff

I know it is possible to correctly set text distance from above the staff, but when you flip (f) the text item, usually it doesn’t respect that set distance. Is there a way of setting that distance to match it with the distance above the staff?

No, there’s no way to adjust this at present. If you set the Default distance from staff option to zero spaces, you’ll see what’s going on: Dorico doesn’t include the height of the text itself when placing it below the staff. It’s always been this way, though perhaps it’s not really correct.

We plan to add more options for the default placement of text in future versions, so this is something we can revisit at that time.
