How to Center Text in a Column

What is the keyboard combination for centering the text in a OneNote 2010 table cell or column? In previous versions of OneNote I was able to center text in a table cell or column using the Ctrl+E keyboard combination. In OneNote 2010 that same keyboard combination now runs the Search function.

There are at least 2 ways to do this.  ALT+H,P,C will invoke the ribbon Home tab, then Paragraph Formatting and finally Center.  You have to keep the ALT key pressed, but this works "as is."

If you want to modify the quick access toolbar, you can add the Center command to it.  Click the dropdown arrow for the QAT (the topmost toolbar just to the right of the ON icon on the top left of the windows frame), then select More Commands.  Search "All Commands" and add the Center command to the ribbon.

Now when you press ALT, you should see the commands on the QAT have each been assigned a number.  On my machine, ALT+5 will center the text - your number might be different depending on what commands you have there.  You can also reorder them and customize these commands as you want.

Thanks for using OneNote,

Thank you sir for introducing me to the Quick Access Toolbar (QAT). I added "Center" to the toolbar, and I see that it is visible and accessible by mouse-click or with the Alt-5 keyboard combination. This is the answer I was looking for. And now that I know what the QAT is I will undoubtedly add my most-used commands and keep the ribbon minimized. Many thanks.
