[Libreoffice-ux-advise] Vertical text alignment for frames

Hi there,

I'm working on a new feature and I'd like to ask for some advise about the UI part. The feature I'm speaking about is text vertical alignment for frames (Insert -> Frame). This text alignment works for drawing elements (shapes, text boxes) and for table cells, but not for frames.

I think we can use the same combo box which we use for table  (Table context menu -> Table -> Text flow -> Alignment). I see two places where it can be added:
    1. In Frame dialog -> Type tab: http://people.inf.elte.hu/zotsaai/type.png
    2. In Frame dialog -> Options tab: http://people.inf.elte.hu/zotsaai/option.png

I changed the label from "Alignment" to "Text alignment" because it can be ambiguous in the new context.

So I have these ideas, but I need ux guys' suggestions for final decision.
