In LibreOffice Writer, I want to copy over some columns from Calc. I want to copy over exactly how they look, and I've found that paste special HTML brings them over exactly how I'd like them, since I need the rows to break over pages when they need to.

However, I can't get the table which copies over aligned. It automatically aligns to the left, and I've tried a number of ways to highlight the table and align it all to no avail.

Does anybody know how I can change the alignment of the tables please?


Try these steps:

  1. Copy from Calc.


  1. Paste special as HTML in Writer. It helps to show table boundaries: View -> Table Boundaries.


  1. Select the table by clicking in the table, then Table -> Select -> Table.


  1. Format -> Align -> Center.
