How to Position or Align Label Text on Microsoft Windows Word 2007 Labels

Updated on March 30, 2014

Introduction to Positioning Label Text Properly

Once I figured out how to print labels on Word on Windows 2007 I realized that positioning the text on the label had a little different feel to it than on previous editions of Microsoft Windows.

Once I figured it out, I thought I'd try an article on the subject. Here's a step-by-step method to position or align text on Microsoft Windows Word 2007.

If you have an older version of Word, see my link at the bottom for different instructions.

Step 1 - Highlight The Text

Find the text you have typed into the label and highlight it. This is the text that you want to align within the label

Step 2

Right click on the the highlighted text and choose CELL ALIGNMENT.

Step 3 - Selecting The Right Position for Text

A box will appear to the right of cell alignment, with buttons that allow you to change the position of your text.

Microsoft Word is great for label text alignment. You can position the text in just about any postion you want. Center right, center left, upper left, upper right, center bottom, etc etc.

See the image below? See the nine little squares next to 'cell alignment' that I have circled? Select the position or alignment you wish your label text to appear by clicking the square that corresponds to the postion you want you text. For example, if you want your text to appear in the lower right corner of the label, click the lower right block. If you want the label name to appear dead center, click the block that is right in the center.

Step 4

If your text size is too small, look to the upper part of your computer screen and you'll see the box with the various font sizes. It is the one with a number in it, located next to the font styles. If you are not seeing it, make sure you are in the "Home" tab. Highlight your text and change the font size.

Step 5

Of course, any other changes you may need such as bold, underline, etc etc can be done in the same fashion. All of these commands are located near the font style, font size commands.

I hope this article helps.
