Centering Text

Recommended Posts

I am aware there is the standard centering text horizontally, but it there a command to centre the text vertically

 

This would be useful to the title block in layout. If my title block is full the text box is nicely proportioned, but the title block is a one line the proportion is out of whack. 

 

Am I miss a command already there...or is a method to overcome this??

I don't know if I am understanding the question..  

 

You should be able to center you text with any object or line.

 

Make sure your text alignment is how you want it, rotate it in the direction you want the text to show.. then center with the lines of the border box..

 

And all main title block geometry should be done on sheet 0..  this will carry over to the rest of the layout sheets.

I believe he is asking about vertical centering.

 

In the rich text box there is a line spacing option in the paragraph box to the top right.

 

Regular text is easier as in the attributes tab there is a setting for top left right and bottom spacing.

I may be misunderstanding, but I have the same issue with title block text.  I use macros in various areas of my title block, and I usually place those macros on page zero.  For the actual page title however, I actually place the text box and reposition as necessary on every single page specifically to address the issue you're discussing.  I still just use the %layout.title% macro in the text box, I just Copy/Paste Hold Position from one page to the next and center in its own little area of the block...

This way the title fits nicely on every page...

Yes Michael I think you are right he was specifically talking about the title label.  I do the same thing for each page.  Set it up on my template as I have pages for everything there with the labels all centered as yo mentioned.
