Based on my research, it is not supported yet currently. There is an idea about that you can vote it up to make this feature coming sooner.

Dear Microsoft

 

I find it pretty shocking that this issue is still outstanding to be honest. This is one of the most basic formatting requirements I can think of, I am very surprised Microsoft did not address this during the original development of Power BI, but the fact this remains outstanding is very frustrating. 

 

Power BI is marketed as a world-leading BI visualisation tool, and it is already challenging to win-over our colleagues and business users to move away from their old-faithful trused tools of SSRS and Excel and adopt Power BI so our organisation can have greater governance and accuracy of our data, and basic visualisation limitations like this do nothing to help in that goal.

 

Come on Microsoft, surely it cannot be such a dificult problem to solve that would justify leaving this outstanding for over 3 years since this was first posted!

Why is this marked as solved?
There is no solution here....

They do that. They class a suggestion to put in a suggestion to PBI as 'solved'. Why do we even have to say it? Vertical Alignment, numerical column widths, ability to format ALL fields in a table at once; being able to lock individual elements on a page. Not all elements at once (used by who, when?). Probably the same guy using a nice gradient of blue as a useful conditional format :), etc. Simple stuff. They keep bringing out new 'features' that you know took hundreds of hours in development, and are usually worse than useless, but they can't fix this? Sorry, PBI rant. Almost a daily occurence now.

Nothing yet?

It's been several years now and Power BI still does not support cell content vertical alignment, a basic feature found in many other visual tools. This lack of support is causing users a great deal of frustration and making it difficult for them to create visually appealing reports.

In this day and age, it's unacceptable that such a crucial feature is still missing from Power BI. As a result, it makes it harder to sell Power BI as a viable solution to potential customers. It's time for Microsoft to step up and provide users with the necessary tools to create professional and visually appealing reports.

Please consider implementing cell content vertical alignment in a future update to Power BI. Your customers will greatly appreciate it.
