I am using Tableau 10.5.3. It seems that when a label is "too close" to a row boundary, Tableau forces it to move up or down, which looks odd. Changing the vertical alignment (bottom, middle, top, automatic) has no effect on this.
See the graphic below for examples. The labels of the top bar and bottom bar in each subdivision are too high/low relative to the other ones. There clearly is enough space to align the labels better.
Any suggested solution? Is this only a problem in 10.5.3?
