Do you mean rotating it 90 degrees for a book spine? That is easy, 
and is explained in both the help files and my e-book.  Do you mean 
centering a line or lines of text in the frame? For that you use the 
little icon in the story editor. There are five, left justified, 
center justified, right justified, full justification like a novel 
etc.  or full justification with the last line forced to be full 
length. You use the center justified icon. 

If you mean stacked letters like an old fashioned hotel sign then 
choose the center justified icon and put each character on its own 
line.  I just tried it and it works fine.
