> Let's say I have a text frame that is about two lines high (in my case, the height is 10.6 mm and my text is 12 pt Arial).? Normally, the top of a single line of text would be at the top of the frame. With the current stable version (1.4.0), what do I do to make this single line appear near the centre (vertically), i.e. about half way down from the top?

The setting you used is intended for subscript/superscript uses, it
moves the character above/below the "base" of the current line.

Have a look at Columns & Text Distances and change the top margin instead.
