Text justification - how?


Recommended Posts

I also created the cover for my novel Fire Light, using mostly with Paint.NET.

 

I just tried to find a way to justify text on both left and right.

 

I am assuming that this option is still not implemented in PDN as I cannot find it.

 

I ended up using Gimp and saving to a png file and then opening that in PDN and copying it. Kinda painful. But GIMP 2 also had a bug. The rightmost characters were slightly cut off using Garamond because my first letter in my paragraph was J.

 

Has anyone implemented the ability to justify text to both left and right yet?

Paint.NET has the ability to align text both left and right. You can choose your font, font size, fill style, alignment, etc. Look up top, all the options are there.

The justification icons are in the tool bar.  The left justified icon is currently highlighted in the partial screenshot.

David.Atwell has correctly pointed out that the thread this question was originally appended to is old.  I've split the question and responses out to this new thread.

Thanks. I still don't see and option to 

 

There is a left justify. 

There is a center justify.

There is a right justify.

There is not a "justify both left and right".

 

Word has 4 options:

word-text-align.png

 

Paint.NET has only three options:

paint-net-text-align.png

 

At least, I don't find the fourth option in Paint.NET.

Paint.NET does not have line justification because it is an image editor and not a word processor. It has no idea where your margins are - so justifying text is not possible.

If you really need those types of tools, do as pdnnoob suggests and create your text in a word processor before importing it as a screenshot.
