    text-indent: 40%;

    That works for the placeholder, but I have some options that are rather long and they get cut off on the right when selected (see image)...  

    Thanks

    Hello eastendyves,

    Unfortunately, this is a limit in CSS and there is no way to center align the text in a dropdown.

    There is a solution to center align only the last selected text but it's not working on Microsoft Edge browsers. Anyhow, you can try this CSS code for select menus:

    select {
       text-align-last: center;
       text-align: center;
       -ms-text-align-last: center;
       -moz-text-align-last: center;
    }

     

    Thanks.
