I have a text I wish to center, but rather than the whole art board, I want to center it to the half of the art board. That is to say I have split the art board in two, and I wish to center the text in one of these halves.

Is this possible with a click or a setting?

  • Select the text box and after check Align to Artboard from the top panel options

Align to Artboard

  • Center it vertically and horizontally
  • Activate the transform Middle Reference Point reference point
  • Put the cursor behind the Y value and add /2 (divided 2) and press Enter to place it in the middle of the top half

Other values from the center:

  • Put the cursor behind the Y value and add *2 (multiplied by 2) and press Enter to place it in the middle of the lower half
  • Put the cursor behind the X value and add /2 (divided 2) and press Enter to place it in the middle of the left half
  • Put the cursor behind the X value and add *2 (multiplied by 2) and press Enter to place it in the middle of the right half

    @AndrewH you can do simple mathematical operations ( + – * / ) in each numerical field of Illustrator and Indesign – Danielillo Jun 12 '18 at 21:59
