# Why doesn't the \closing center in my letter?

If I pdflatex the below Latex, then "Kind regards," and "Sandra" doesn't get centred.

If the letter is two pages long, then it does.

Question

How do I get this centred when my letter is just one page?

\documentclass[a4paper, danish]{letter}
\usepackage{a4}
\usepackage[danish]{babel}
\usepackage[utf8]{inputenc}
\usepackage[T1]{fontenc}
\usepackage{aeguill}

\signature{Sandra}

\begin{document}
\begin{letter}{}
\opening{Re: }

test

\closing{Kind regards,}

\end{letter}
\end{document}

Those are not usually centered, but you could surround them in the center environment: \begin{center} \closing{Kind regards,} \end{center}. –  Peter Grill Jan 7 '13 at 3:30
You could also just end letter with \centering Kind regards,\par\vskip{5\baselineskip} Sandra. –  Werner Jan 7 '13 at 3:35
Even with two pages, I do not see any centering. As the content produced by \closing is inside a \parbox (that is \raggedright), neither the center environment (@PeterGrill) nor the \centering macro actually center the text horizontally. On that note, {\centering\closing{\centering Kind regards}} centers the actual text inside the \parbox and the \parbox as well. –  Qrrbrbirlbel Jan 7 '13 at 3:38
@Qrrbrbirlbel: Good point. I did not look carefully enough and indeed it is not cnetered with \begin{center}, but it is also not centered using \closing{\centering Kind regards}. I think the \closing macro needs to be redefined. –  Peter Grill Jan 7 '13 at 3:46
Can you provide a pair of MWE that shows the multipage letter with the closing centered. If I add \usepackage{lipsum} and \lipsum[1-20] to your MWE, the closing stays in the same place. –  StrongBad Jan 7 '13 at 10:32

The closing isn't never centered, but it will change its location and move more to the middle if you add a "fromaddress" with \address{fromadress}.
The letter-class is quite old and not very good. Consider to use a better one: http://www.tex.ac.uk/cgi-bin/texfaq2html?label=letterclass
Avoid the a4 and the aeguill packages.
Is the letter class any older than the article class? –  StrongBad Jan 7 '13 at 10:34
@Ulrike Fischer Yes, I removed the \address{} to make it fit one page =) Thanks for pin pointing the problem. How would you have made my example? –  Sandra Schlichting Jan 7 '13 at 19:08
