This report should belong on GitHub, but do you still have an older site that shows vertical alignment options? I do not remember seeing that set of buttons for the Table block, and I do not find it in my 6.2 or 6.4 WordPress local installations. I only found a request to add the alignment feature in #49897/GB6923.

  • Milestone changed from Awaiting Review to Future Release

I don't think this is a bug in 6.5, I think this is a feature request that should be reported to the Gutenberg repo.

Moving out of Awaiting Review for tracking purposes.

I just found out a few of the old sites added vertical align with a plugin. Unfortunately tables in WordPress are just missing vertical align. Sorry about that. I asked for it in GB6923 as it's a basic accessibility feature.
