Chapter 5. Working with Text > Changing Text Alignment

Changing Text Alignment

Similar to other text editing tools or word processing programs, Flash includes features for formatting paragraphs with alignment, margins, and indentation. These features can be accessed through the Text menu and in the Property Inspector whenever any text field is selected on the Stage. Each text field can have it's own individual properties assigned to it. Alignment governs the position of the text in a text box, margins are the space between the left and right side of the text and the boundaries of the text box, and indentation sets the amount of character spaces before the first line of text in a paragraph begins.

Align Paragraph Text

Select the text in a text field you want to align or you can select the entire text box with the Arrow tool.

In the Property Inspector, click one of the following:

  • Align Left. Aligns text to the left margin.

  • Align Right. Aligns text to the right margin.

  • Align Center. Text is centered between the boundaries of the text box.

  • Justify. Each line of text fills the width of the text box boundary.
