    Centre within Text Box (2003)

    Hi. Is there a way to centre text both horizontally and vertically within a Text Box? I can adjust the internal margins of the box but wondered if there were an easier way?

    Thanks, Andy.

    You can center align the text in the text box to center horizontally.
    There is no easy way to center vertically.

    You could place a single-cell borderless table within the text box, resize the cell to fit the text box exactly and place the text in the cell. You can center text both horizontally and vertically in a table cell.

    If you are going to do that, why not just use a single-cell table in the first place? You can flow text round tables in Word 2003.
