    Sigh how do i get around this? I want my name to be down a bit more - in the centre. Go ahead, laugh but this is something that has been annoying me and i know the majority of everything else in Word. :o

    Is the text in a text box or just on the page normally?

    If its in a box, play about with the wrapping settings and you should be able to get it to resize and move it around as an object.

    I made a shape and then added the text...wait, i should have done a text box shouldn't i..lemme fiddle -.-

    Back. No it's the same problem and the wrapping doesn't seem to make any difference. I want a box 1.4cm high and 4cm long - which i adjusted in the settings and then my name in the middle but at the moment, it's stuck closer to the top.

    I think that you have to right click on the box, go to properties, go along to the layout tab and click "in line with text". After you've done this you should be able to just click on the box and align it like you would with text.

    hope this helps :)

    Doesn't work, couldn't even find that setting. May end up having to manually select just the text itself somehow and shift it down a bit? :confused:

    What version of Word are you using? 2000?

    Because on 2002/2003, it automatically creates a drawing canvas which allows free movement of the text box for me.

    I swear I used to have similar problems with text boxes and it was either the wrapping of the text around the box or the box itself.

    If all else fails, just create an image with your name in the middle in photoshop, make it the same width as the page and insert it :p

    If you want to centre it vertically in the box, right click, properties, text box tab and just tweak the top internal margin.

    Create a table, set the borders as required and you can centre the text in the cell virticaly and horizontaly.
