I used wrap text on "~" and now I have two lines of text from one attribute field. Is there a way to center that and not just choosing center as the horizontal alignment? QGIS 1.8.

What is wrong with choosing center as alignment. –  Nathan W Jan 9 '13 at 22:11
    
I just moves the control point and doesn't center the text. –  LandArch Jan 9 '13 at 23:31
    
What do you mean by control point? –  Nathan W Jan 9 '13 at 23:32
    
If you can upload a image that helps. –  Nathan W Jan 9 '13 at 23:33
    
The Control point is what I called the blue square in the center. I was hoping to get the "City of" centered over "Newburgh". –  LandArch Jan 9 '13 at 23:51

You need to set the alignment with the wrapping properties

Note: This is only in the current dev build not in 1.8.

Not in QGIS 1.8. Multi-line text alignment for labels is a new feature in 1.9 (i.e. upcoming 2.0 release, since 1.9 is not going to be released). Currently, the Change Label Properties dialog (in 1.9) does not include the multi-line properties capable of being set at the layer level.
