How do you center or justify text in OneNote?

This is not available.

And IMHO it's not needed.
Always remember that ON is not a fully blown *wordprocessor* but a
most versatile instrument for taking notes and organizing stuff of all
sort.

It actually is available, but just not in the UI.
Right-aligning a paragraph is done via CTRL+R
Center is CTRL+E
Left-align is CTRL+L

In OneNote 2007, Help, Keyboard Shortcuts, gives a very nice list of all
keyboard shortcuts available in ON.

There aren't toolbar buttons for it, but the KB shortcuts from Word work:

Ctrl-L (Left Align)
Ctrl-R (Right Align)
Ctrl-E (Center)

There is no Justify setting available, though.

OK, fine, at least 3 of the 4.
Not "justify" what the OP also asked for. But this really would not
make too much sense anyway.
Thanks for telling me.

Thanks even more for this pointer.
I should have found it myself. I remember to have been there before
but I forgot it [ggrrrh]

But this made my day. :-( :-(
My list of design flaws seems to become a never ending list.

Once again "hidden" features. It may perhaps be tolerable that there
is no button for the toolbar. But not excuse for the absence from the
menu system. If a feature is available, it has to be made at least
*visible*. A list of 15 pages (I now printed it out <g>) in the OLH is
anything but sufficient.
Unbelievable that one of the core principles of GUI design is violated
that often. Such a great piece of software and such beginners'
mistakes ... [grrrhhh].

And this weighs even far more in application based on TabletPC
usability.
We had discussion on this before. As to my opinion in an application
for usage on a tablet *everything* requiring keyboard usage is a true
NoNo. Shortcut keys are a fine thing. But for every combination there
should be an equivalent for the pen.

As there are quite some features out of reach on a slate would it
perhaps be possible to create a page for the TaskPane?
This said although I think that the TaskPane is not a good
construction at all for tablets with their limited screen space.

the Win 95 StyleGuide ;-)

I have Word and like the Justifying feature.
Paste feature in ON should have the ability to import justified text from
Word and keep it the way it is (justified or not).

OneNote is not a fully feature wordprocessor and naturally can not have
all of the features f.e. Word provides.
So I doubt that it might be possible.
But you may post your suggestions in "Connect", the place for submitting
