I'm sure I'm not the only person who has struggled with trying to center information on a page in Word. I've spent too much time trying to add enough line feeds and tabs to get that effect. Had I known about this particular formatting option, my life would have been much easier.
Here we have a Word document with some text at the top of the page, like you would normally have if you just started typing:
However, I'd really like to have this show up in the exact center of the page. To do that, I highlight the text, click on the Page Layout
tab, and click the Expand
icon in the Page Setup
In the Page Setup
dialog box, select the Layout
tab and select your Vertical Alignment
option in the Page
area. When finished, click OK
Now your text is centered on the page, without the need of multiple carriage returns. :)
