    Default Report Text Justify

    Is there a way to justify (that is align text to both margins) in a report ? I have tried the Text object, Rich Text object and HTML object - they offer right, left and centre align, not justify.

    Any way to do this in AA?

    Thanks,
    Greg

    Is this possible in any way, or just not supported in AA ?

    I think I have solved this - by putting the RTF control inside a conditional object, it seems to magically justify the text ???

    Also, for variable text, I can use the HTML text object with the formatting as follows:

    <p align="justify" style="FONT-SIZE: 15px" ;>
    <font face="Calibri">
    {variable}
    </font></p>

    From the Reports menu, choose View and turn on Text Toolbar.
    Highlight text in a textbox on the report, then choose your justification in the Text Toolbar.

    Unfortunately there is no 'justify' option, only left, right or center.

    Only left, right, center are available under textbox Properties. The Text Toolbar shows all justification options.
    If you turn on the Text Toolbar (from the top menu under View), it will show as a floating window when editing the text in a textbox. (It disappears when not editing.)
    In this window, there are 4 justification options, the last one being both margins justified.

    Seems like the fourth option (justify left and right) doesn't appear for a textbox, only for rich textbox or HTML textbox.
