WinWord: Center Vertical Alignment Causes Gap After Frame PSS ID Number: Q102141 Article last modified on 07-14-1994

2.00 2.00a 2.00a-CD 2.00b 2.00c


The information in this article applies to:
- Microsoft Word for Windows, versions 2.0, 2.0a, 2.0a-CD, 2.0b, and 2.0c


When you select the Center Vertical Alignment option in the Format Section Layout dialog box, Word for Windows may insert extra space after a frame, which causes a gap under the frame. This space does not appear on the screen in all views, but it appears in print preview and when you print the document.

If you change the Vertical Alignment section layout setting to Top or Justified, Word does not add any extra space after the frame.

The Center Vertical Alignment option is designed to center the information on a page between the top and bottom margins. It should not change the spacing between page elements.

Microsoft is researching this problem and will post new information here in the Microsoft Knowledge Base as it becomes available.


If you want to vertically center a page that contains a frame, do not use the Center Vertical Alignment option. Instead, use one of the following methods to manually center the page:

  • Insert paragraph marks at the top of the page.


  • In the Paragraph dialog box, change the Before, After, and Line Spacing paragraph settings under Spacing.
