In Writer, how does one center a page vertically?

In previous versions, this could be done, but I don't see it now.

Please edit the question to more clearly indicate what content is being centred. A page is a container that itself cannot be centred as there is no larger container (other than the document). Thanks.

There is currently no method of vertically centring text content within a page (this is not supported by the ODF v1.2 specification). You will need to place your text within a Frame:

  1. Insert > Frame....
  2. Ensure Width is set to Automatic and Height is set to AutoSize.
  3. Set Position to Horizontal > Center > Entire Page and Vertical > Center > Entire Page.
  4. Click OK.
  5. Enter your text.

Adjust as required.
