Why Centering Matters

Centering content can enhance the overall aesthetics and readability of your Notion pages. Whether you’re writing a blog post, creating a presentation, or organizing your tasks, centering can help create a visually appealing layout.

How to Center Text in Notion

There are a few different approaches to centering text in Notion. Let’s explore each one:

Method 1: Using Inline Code Blocks

One way to center text in Notion is by using inline code blocks. Here’s how:

  1. Highlight the text you want to center.
  2. Click the / slash key to open the command menu.
  3. Type /code and select “Inline Code Block” from the options.
  4. Inside the code block, add four spaces before and after the text.

Using inline code blocks may not be the most intuitive method, but it can effectively center your text in Notion.

Method 2: Utilizing Table Blocks

Another way to center text in Notion is by using table blocks. Follow these steps:

  1. Create a table block by clicking the “+” button in Notion’s toolbar and selecting “Table”.
  2. Resize the table width to your desired size.
  3. Enter your text in the cell(s) of the table.
  4. Select the text you want to center and click the “Center Align” button in the toolbar.

Using table blocks can provide a structured and organized way to center your content in Notion.

Method 3: Using Markdown

If you’re familiar with Markdown syntax, you can use it to center text in Notion. Here’s how:

  1. Highlight the text you want to center.
  2. Enclose the text with three backticks (```) at the beginning and end.
  3. On the line before the text, type three colons (:::).
  4. Press Enter to create a new line and type three colons (:::) again.

Markdown allows for more customization when centering text, making it a powerful option for Notion users.


Centering text in Notion may require some creativity and experimentation, but with these methods, you can achieve beautiful and well-organized pages. Whether you prefer inline code blocks, table blocks, or markdown, finding the right approach for your workflow can make a significant difference in the visual appeal of your Notion workspace.
