# Issue: Change the vertical alignment of text on a page in word.

Vertical alignment determines the position of the text within a section of a document relative to the top and bottom margins.
Vertical alignment is often used to create a cover page or title page for a document. In Microsoft Office Word 2007, you can quickly and easily add a cover page to your document without having to change the vertical alignment option.

Solution:

You can change the vertical alignment of the text within a section or of selected text only. You can align the text at the top of the page, center the text, justify the text, or align the text at the bottom of the page.
1.     On the Page Layout tab, click the Page Setup Dialog Box Launcher, and then click the Layout tab.
2.    In the Vertical alignment box, click the option that you want.
3.    In the Apply to box, click Whole documentThis section, or This point forward, and then click OK.
