The following example displays a rectangle in the center of the page below the top margin:

Document document = wordProcessor.Document;
// Create a rectangle.
Shape rectangle = document.Shapes.InsertShape(document.Range.Start, ShapeGeometryPreset.Rectangle, new SizeF(500, 300));
// Align the rectangle horizontally and vertically.
rectangle.RelativeHorizontalPosition = ShapeRelativeHorizontalPosition.Page;
rectangle.HorizontalAlignment = ShapeHorizontalAlignment.Center;
