Distribute is working correctly for me. Which distribute option did you use?
Did you try to use Modify Distribute with text formatted as I have it in the above or just text? I have tried it with just text and it does not work for me and I do have the latest Edge upgrade. Please note I am setting up each text word in its separate div in order to animate each word.. I am also renaming it to the same word it represents so Home is named"home".
Hold it I just did a distribute left which did not work but distribute right did work; but when I add a "|" (Cntrl \)divider it does not work. The dividers gets tangled within the text.. So I need to come up with a way to evenly distribute them into the aligned text.
It does work for me...but you have to be careful about the size of the text div vs. the font size.
If by chance one of your pipe character divs is wider than the others (not the font...the div), then that will throw the distribution off, as distribute works from the width and height of the div.
If you continue to have trouble, try using the rectangle tool to make a 1 or 2 px wide div for your separators, and then align and distribute them as needed.
