    RE-Center Across Selection (2003)

    Hi All,

    I use "Center Across Selection" for centering titles, as I think most people do. Sometimes I change my mind as to how many cells are in the selection.

    For example, I may have a title "centered across a selection" of 3 cells and decide I only want the title centered across 2 cells.

    Usually I can select the left-most cell, change its formatting back to Left or something, select 2 cells, and re-center across selection. Sometimes this does NOT work and the title "jumps" back to be centered across the original 3 cells. I checked the left-most cell (where the title is) and there's nothing strange about any of the other formatting attributes (eg, no "wrap text", no "merge cells").

    Any ideas of why this happens and how to fix it? I can fudge my way around this (eg, indent the entry in the left-most of the 2 cells so it spills over to the adjacent cell and looks centered across the 2) but I'd prefer to use "center across selection" as intended. Using my work-around, I have to re-do the indenting if I change the widths of the columns involved.

    TIA

    Fred

    The step "select the left-most cell, change its formatting back to Left or something" is incorrect. Instead, select the 3 cells and set Horizontal alignment to Left or General.

    Hi Hans,

    Very strange. I am almost 100% sure that I've done it "my way" and it's worked in the past although not all the time. I tried it "your way" and it worked. Lesson learned.

    Thanks.

    Fred
