The top Indesign align text bottom the frame is defined as the baseline of the first line of top-aligned text. I have a way that may help you, but have not thoroughly tested yet. You can choose whether a paragraph spans all columns or a specified number of columns. The wide text box is most likely to contain the most text it's an invoice template. Step 1 Create a text box, type the text that you want to align vertically, and press "Ctrl-B" to open the Text Frame Options window. OR - my other thought was that I could make the initial text box taller than required to hold the longest of the texts, copy that, and then add empty returns at the start of each text, to force the text down a line at a time, to the lowest point they can go without overflowing the text box.
