  • Hi Ken,

    Create a rectangle 980 X 180 on a new layer, move that layer down (to the back), center it on the Artboard and lock the layer; you can rename it 'Background' if you like.  Create your other objects on layer(s) above (in front of) that 'base' layer.

    To center an object on the Artboard, select the object and choose Edit>Cut (Yes, Cut).  now choose View>Center View and then Edit>Paste (Control + V). 

    Does this work for you?
