    Cover Pages (2007)

    I'm having the darnedest time doing something that I know should be [and probably is] easy.

    I want to set up a cover page.

    I have the header all done (yea!)

    Now I want a running head, top left. No Problem.

    Then I want the page title and description centered on the page, vertically and horizontally.

    This is seeming to just not like me. Either it won't do it, or it wants to do ALL the text.

    I know the text in question should be in a Section, and then center that section, but I'm just not getting it right somehow.

    What the heck am I doing wrong here?

    Regards,
    Chuck Billow

    Horizontal centering is a property of paragraphs.
    Vertical centering is a property of the page setup.

    Hans, the left-right part I grok, thanks.

    But when it comes to the verticals, how do I have part of the page aligned "Top", then part "Center", and the rest (of the multi-page document) aligned "Top" ("normal")?

    I cannot seem to "mix" those two.

    You can't mix different vertical alignments on one page - you'll have to play with Space Before or Space After in the Paragraph Format dialog to position the text the way you want.

    Another way to treat one chunk of text differently is to use a TextBox. This takes the text out of the normal flow, so if you need to run macros, link to it from elsewhere in the document, or do a lot of reorganization, it might not be a very convenient solution.

    You could create a three row table, give all the rows a fixed height so that they fill the page, and set the horizontal and vertical alignments for each table cell to give the effect you want.

    Stuart/Jefferson:

    I'm not ( <img src=/S/blush.gif border=0 alt=blush width=15 height=15> as well versed in either tables or text boxes as I probably should be.

    I'll look at the two...one ought to certainly work.

    Thanks guys!

    Then again, your running head could be included in your header (different first page), couldn't it?.

    Peter, you're right...I could set up my first page header as different form the rest, couldn't I...

    Thanks,
