shows label with bottom alignment instead of desired centering
I use the following XAML:
<StackLayout WidthRequest="350" HorizontalOptions="Center" Orientation="Horizontal" VerticalOptions="Center" Padding="10,0,0,0" Spacing="0" BackgroundColor="Red">
<Label Font="35" Text="Yesterday 18" VerticalOptions="Center" HorizontalOptions="Start" TextColor="#FBFBFB" />
This yields a label which is vertically bottom aligned instead of centered. Happens in Android and WP8 (did not test on IOS). Please see attached image.
I have checked this issue but I am unable to reproduce this behavior. I have created sample app and added code given in description and observed that Label shows in center.
Steps that I have followed:
1.Create a Xmarin.forms project.
2.Add a Forms Xaml Page in the project.
3.Add the given code in the file.
3.Build and deploy.
When I deploy the app the label shows in the center.Please let me know If i missed any step.

Test Project(Label not shows with bottom Alignment)
I am attaching another screen shot from your sample app.
In it I drew green squares above and below the "1" so that you can see what I mean. The "1" should be centered vertically but it is not. The are 8 pixels above it and 6 below it.
Maybe I am nitpicking but the text just does not quite center vertically.

green colored pixel shows the problem...
