Chapter 4. Working with Web Page Text > Setting Text Alignment and Spacing

Setting Text Alignment and Spacing

Text alignments vary the look of a Web page and help lead the user through the text. You can align text along the left or right margin, in the center, or equally across the page. You can quickly change text alignment using alignment buttons on the Formatting toolbar. Line spacing is another way to vary the look of a Web page. The lines in a Web page are single-spaced by default, but you can easily change line spacing to double or 1.5 lines to allow extra space between every line. Sometimes, you'll want to add space above and below certain paragraphs, such as for headlines or indented quotations to help set off the text.

Change Text Alignment

Click the View menu, click Page, and then open the Web page you want to use.

Select the text you want to align.

Click an alignment button on the Formatting toolbar to apply the attribute that you want the selected text.

  • Align Left button. Aligns text along the left margin. The text is uneven along the right margin.

  • Center button. Aligns text in the middle of the page.

  • Align Right button. Aligns text along the right margin. The text is uneven along the left margin.

  • Justify button. Aligns text evenly between the two margins.
