Lines of text in my document are highlighted and centered with the centered justification icon in the ruler, but the text does not appear to be centered correctly.
If you cannot see the right indent marker on your ruler, the text may actually be centered correctly between your indents. This can occur because the midpoint between left and right indents is farther right than the middle of the screen.
However, if the text is visibly not centered between the two indents, extra spaces before or after the text may be causing the problem. Use the following steps to determine if this is the problem:
- Select leading spaces by dragging the pointer from the beginning of the first word on the line toward the left margin; then, press BACKSPACE or choose Cut from the Edit menu.
- Select trailing spaces by dragging the pointer from the last word on the line toward the right margin; press DEL or choose Cut from the Edit menu.
