inDesign Tip #1 Vertically Centering a Text Box
The trick is to have a text box on the screen that can center align vertically. To turn this feature on or off, first select the text box of choice, then go to the menu bar at the top of the screen. Then go to “Objects”, then “Text Frame Options…”. Once in this menu, make sure you are on the “General” tab. In this menu, you will find a section called vertical justification. Just click on the drop down box next to “Align:” and change it to center. Voila! You have successfully changed a text frame to be vertically centered!
Here is a map for quick reference.
Objects > Text Frame Options > General > Align: > Centered
