Another beginners dumb question....
I am putting type in a box. I can center the type horizontally but I can not figure out how to also center it vertically.
Select the text frame, and choose Object > Text Frame Options. There you can set vertical alignment.
I strongly suggest buying Sandee Cohen's InDesign Visual Quickstart Guide (Peachpit Press). For less than 20 bucks, it will save you lots of time, pain and heartache!
Thank you very much Steve. I will take your advise!!!!
