Working with text - Formatting text

Setting the line text alignment

When you create text, you can set the text alignment before you specify the insertion point. You set the alignment by choosing it in the prompt box. By default, text is left justified. You can align text at the left, center, or right and at the top, middle, or baseline of the text or at the bottom of descending letters.

  1. Top left
  2. Middle left
  3. Left
  4. Bottom left
  5. Center
  6. Bottom center
  7. Bottom right
  1. Baseline
  2. Right
  3. Middle right
  4. Top right
  5. Middle
  6. Middle center
  7. Top center

You can also align text so that it fits or aligns between two points. The Align option creates text that scales up or down while maintaining a constant height/width ratio; the Fit option expands or compresses the text to fit between the two points.
