Comment #3 by Bruce STEERS:

Okay , here is a video..

In the clip....
I run the application with the ShadowText file using Paint.DrawText to paint the shadow.
With no border the black text I draw is center as should be but the Labels own White text is aligned left.

Then i set the labels Border = Border.Plain
Then the white text is centered okay.
Then i turn off the border again, back to misaligned text.

Then i change the Black texts command in ShadowLabel.class Paint.DrawText to be Paint.Text and Paint.Stroke instead and the text is then aligned correctly.

So i have a workaround to use Paint.Stroke anyway but seemed like a bug. Sorry it's possibly expected behaviour, only you would know.
Happy Yule tide good fellow :)
