How to Line Text Vertically in Microsoft Word 2007


Word 2007's alignment helps you format text within a document quickly. You can set the alignment horizontally or vertically. Horizontal alignment lets you left-align, right-align, center or justify text from side to side. Vertical alignment lets you top-align, bottom-align, justify or center text from top to bottom. You can format text vertically for your entire document or specific pages. Vertical alignment on a single page is especially useful if you're formatting a cover page.

Vertically Align Entire Document

  • Open the document you want to modify in Microsoft Word 2007.

  • Select the "Page Layout" tab. Click the Page Setup dialog box launcher at the bottom, right of the "Page Setup" group. The Page Setup dialog box opens.

  • Pick the "Layout" tab and go to the "Page" section.

  • Select an alignment from the "Vertical alignment" drop-down list. Click "OK."

Vertically Align Specific Pages

  • Open the document you're formatting in Word 2007.

  • Place your cursor just before the text you want to align.

  • Go to the "Page Layout" tab and "Page Setup" group. Select "Breaks" and "Next Page" to create a section break.

  • Place your cursor where you want the vertical alignment to stop. Repeat Step 3 to insert a next page section break at that line.

  • Return to the page you want to align and go to the "Page Layout" tab. Click the Page Setup dialog box launcher in the "Page Setup" group.

  • Select the "Layout" tab in the Page Setup dialog box. Set the "Vertical alignment" to your preferred option.
