Button Labels

I'm not sure quite what you are referring to, as for me, button labels 
are always centered, but to change them there are 2 basic methods:
1. in text formatting, change the alignment to left, center or right to 
move the button's text.
2. change the margins. Still in the Text formatting section of the 
Inspector, you will see the margins entry which by default contains a 
single number. The tricky bit is that this can contain 4 numbers, 
separated by commas, specifying the left, top, right, bottom margins 
differently. If you enter only one number, that sets all four margins 
to the same value. Play around with entering and then editing 4 margins 
to get the result you need.

For the How do I... section of the manual, check out the Transcript 
Examples cookbook, and be sure to look at the See Also list every time 
you look something up in the Transcript Dictionary.
