Centering Text - Escapes Me ?

Recommended Posts

Ok, I don't understand how to center this text

vertically and horizontally ?

 

I see the marker bars but when I select them

it shoves the text all the way to the bottom or to the side ???

 

I'm sure there is a way to do this but ???

 

I'm using X6

Also it is very finicky to get center line to show up, try at very bottom of your page and move mouse slowly.

The center line is showing on bottom/top or sides

 

but when I click it moves the text box all the way over

 

surely there has to be a way to do this without "fussing"

Can you open new layout and get same results? Have you reboot computer? I have had that problem on a plan file but it was because I had rotated plan. Good luck

Lew, layout pages are probably the single most difficult place to use the center objects tool. You just have to very slowly move your mouse across down at the bottom or top until you get a VERTICAL marker. Do the same thing on the side until you get a HORIZONTAL marker. When trying to center on a layout page those particular markers only show up when you're in just the right spot it seems.

It just seemed pretty clear to me that Lew wasn't understanding that he was using the wrong "center line" which is why I stressed the importance of using the lines that show up in the correct orientation (perpendicular to the side you're trying to center on).
