I have the text aligned to center in a query, but it doesn't align to center on the form. I have Googled this and not found the answer. When I edit the form and click on a text box and then right click to alignment, there is no selection possible. Also the align button on the top tool-bar is grayed out.

Is there an easy way or ??

Alignment is found in the properties of a control. Right click the control & select Control (if a table, right the the column header & select Column). This brings up the properties dialog. You change alignment here: image description

Please refer to the LO documentation for more information. It contains more specifics on properties.

The formatting toolbar is not active when working with controls. If you click on the form itself, it is available.
