In the page setup pane there was a check box for vertical and a check box for horizontal page alignment that would automatically align the entire page. In Word 2003, only the vertical alignment remains. Why was horizontal alignment removed? Now you hav

e to play around with the margins to find the center instead of simply having the app place my text box in the center of the page.

    • There has never been such a setting in Page Setup. The setting you remember

      is in Format Text Box | Layout | Advanced.

    • The setting I am referring to was included in Page Setup... I just happen to be attempting to center a text box. But if it were word art, text or anything else there was a check box for Horizontal and a check box for Vertical Page alignment on the Page S

      etup dialog box. I used it all the time.
