Our next big decision is the alignment of the text and of course we have…practically two choices. Is it going to be left aligned or sometimes referred…to as ragged-right or is it going to be left justified, sometimes just referred…to as justified? And those are our options, Left, Left Justified.…Do we want the extra space at the end of the line or do we want the extra space…distributed throughout the line, between the words? When we can see that when…we go to Left Alignment here, it does create a quite problem of extra varying…spaces between the words.…
Now there are certain settings that we can choose if we do want to go with…justified alignment that will minimize that, but that is the issue with-working…with justified text, the issue when working with left aligned text is we want…to make sure that our rack on the right hand side is as even as possible.…So just before we look at the settings, let's take a look at some examples and…I have come to the conclusion based upon nothing more than my own observations…
