This sounds really useful for fields as well ;
especially for those who are using them as cells for
substitute table controls.

I suggest as default values for buttons :
- vAlign is "bottom"
- hAlign is "center"
And as default values for fields :
- vAlign is "top"
- hAlign is "left"

That way things are as they have always been.
