    As this has probably been discussed before, I'm stuck and pulling my hair out...lol
    the text on the right is middle-align, prefect, the text on the left is also middle-aligned but is offset. How can i fix the left text to match the right?

    Use MATCHPROPERTIES enter 'MATCHPROP' at your commandline, then just follow the prompts, should fix you right up. Or you can find it on your MODIFY dropdown from the menu bar.

    Have you tried to "remove formatting" on the text on the left? Highlight the text in the edit box. Right click and select "remove ALL formatting". Just a shot in the dark. Hope it works.

    Are those text, they look like MTEXT. Do you have column values applied to the on on the left, causing it to leave a margin perhaps?

    Good thought, that will probably take care of it.

    As is so often the case, when you get stuck, turn to somebody smarter than the average bear.
