Sounds simple and it is

Centering text. You select center and you’re done, right? Not always. You still have to look at your type. Lean back, squint your eyes and look. Does it look centered? There will be times when it doesn’t appear so. One problem may be you added a space at the front of the line of text, easy fix there. Other times it just doesn’t look right. There are no extra spaces, so what’s up? It may the typeface you’re using has funny o’s or w’s. How do you fix it? You eye ball it. Add an extra space to make it look right. And that’s the secret, do what you have to make it look right. The other guideline for centering type is tapering. The top line is your longest line:
