Use Baseline Shift to center Text in Text Wrap

I’ve seen people misuse the baseline shift setting too often and have become a bit weary of the setting altogether. But I saw a student use it to center text within a text wrap and I have to say, I can’t think of a better way to do this.

Since text wraps will cause the text to wrap to the next line, and that’s dependent on the text size and leading, and so on, it’s often difficult to get the text wrap item centered properly within the text flow. But since baseline shift will shift the text placement, but not the frame placement, it’s a great solution to nudge the text to where you want it to go!
