I have the level menu screen setup and noticed the numbers are not align center inside the square.

I added logics to align 1 digital vs 2 digital, but even same length are not aligned center.

Example: 1 is center but 7 seems to be align more toward left side.

Is there a way to center number inside a square?

Are you using float values rather than integers?
Is it text created with CreateText() ?
If so you can use GetTextTotalWidth() to get the pixel width of the value
