Finding halfway down a page

Guest

I want to be able to put some text halfway down a page, but I don't know how to mark where halfway is. How can I mark where (EXACTLY) halfway is on a page? Is it possible to use tabs or something?

Have a look at File > Page Setup. If you set equal margins top and bottom
and use the vertical alignment 'center' page layout, does that do the trick?

No, because it moves everything in the document. I just want to move one paragraph with a heading
Sort of like when you use tabs on the 'horizontal' ruler, and then you can indent whatever and/or as many line you want

But I'm trying to put ONE paragraph (with a heading) halfway down a page, without moving everything in the document
Do you know what I mean??

What you can do is set the paragraph spacing. Click "Format, "Paragraph",
click the "Line Spacing" TAB and set the "Before" and "After" spacing to
what you need to move the paragraph down. Keep in mind that 72 pts = 1
inch. There is no automatic way to make a paragraph set in the middle of
the page without using the method mentioned by Margaret.

Note that although you can apply Space Before to move your paragraph down,
this space will be suppressed if the paragraph is the first one on the page
unless it follows a page or section break (or is formatted as "Page break
before"). Another way to introduce space is to insert a borderless table
cell. You can either put an empty table cell (with row height set to the
appropriate Exact amount) above the paragraph, or you can put the paragraph
in the table cell, with vertical alignment in the cell set to Bottom.
