1) put texts into the left, middle, and right part of the footer.
2) The middle part is higher than the left and right parts.

I've attached screen shot, where a big font is used to illustrate the difference.

Title In footer, the text in the middle is higher than the texts in the left and right. In footer, the left/middle/right sections can be slightly differently heights

It's not that the middle is always higher, it's that the alignment is set to "bottom" rather than "baseline", means that any text that includes characters that extend below the baseline will be positioned differently than other text. In other words it depends on the text itself, not whether it is left, middle, or right.

Probably we should set the alignment to baseline instead of bottom, although I think we would also need to make sure this does the right thing in terms of actually putting the footer on the bottom of the page. WHile we're at it, we could conisider adding an offset as per #285361: Footer: add 5mm Y-offset to imported 2.x files for compatibility

Setting to baseline for elements with "page" currently makes them appear midway down page, but that's easy enough to fix too, in the layout for textbase...
