Is it possible to center numbering in the middle or top of a shape?

Right now, as far as I can tell, when you apply the numbering function to a shape and its subsequent daughter shapes, the number always stays at the bottom of the shape (when you have two or more lines of text). This may be more of a style issue, but it looks really bad and doesn't make sense when you are reading a list to have the numbers at the bottom - I would rather have the numbers at the top or in the middle of the text (similar to how you can choose where to have an image in the shape). Is there a way to do this, or is this not a feature of this software?

Hello. It would be helpful for me to know what Mindjet product you are using as well as the version. If you could send over a screen shot of what you are referring to, I willbe able to better understand what you are trying to do. Thank you!

Sure thing - I am using Mindjet for Mac 9, but have seen this as well with Mindjet 2012. I have added a screenshot. Basically - I want the automatic numbering to be in the center or at the top of the text (text reads from top down, but with the number at the bottom, it is confusing and people want to read up).

Here is a screenshot of what I am looking for as a mockup:

Thank you for sending over those screen shots. Formatting the numbering to be in the center of your topics is not possible. Please feel free to submit this as an idea so that our product team can take this into consideration for future releases. Thanks again.

Thanks - will do. I had a feeling it wasn't possible but wanted to confirm.

I have the same need. Strange that the only default option is at the bottom instead of at the top.

I have the same need as well. I agree with the comment that the default is for the formatting to be at the bottom instead of the top. That is the least appealing style and causes confusion. Is there a product enhancement request for this yet? If not, how do we get it in the road-map?
