As of versions 1.5.x we now have built-in vertical text centering. In
the Text Properties palette, under the Columns and Text Distances
sub-tab, the first item is Vertical Alignment, with a drop-down list
choice between Top, Middle, and Bottom.

You will find some tweaks of this by adjusting the First Line Offset
(another sub-tab).
