Force vertical alignment

Sorry for these basic questions, but please bear with me.  I have a simple sketch and want to align the midpoint of the base with the origin.  I select the origin and the midpoint of the base, but when I click on the horizontal/vertical relationship, it line them up horizontally.

 

How do I force a vertical alignment?  Wouldn't be easier to have separate buttons for horizontal and vertcial alignment?

Hi,

 

 

Simply use the "Connection Relation" instead.

 

This is the upper left button in the relate area.

While connect will work, the issue you were having with Vertical alignment is that you were just too far from vertically aligned to begin with. The H/V command looks at current situation and does H or V, depending on which one is already closest. So if you had dragged your shape over to be more or less under the Csys, then chosen H/V, it would have worked just fine.
