Change text justification or alignment

You can change the justification of the text. This means whether the text is lined up against the left, against the right, or centred within the space available.

Note that all images below are taken from a standard Plone website - your website may have a different look, so the images are only a guide, they may not be exact.

1. To left justify the text, so it is lined up against the left edge of the space available:

a. Type the words or lines that you want to make left justified, if not already present.
