Recommended Posts

Justify last line left. it is above the all

I have never mastered color management, period, so I cannot help with that.

You need to use Justify Left.

When I click or select the last line and justify left, it applies it to the entire paragraph. I only want the last line justified left and everything else justify all.

What am I don't wrong?

Thanks

 

okay, I see if I use the right click and justify left it works. I was using the tool bar justify left

This was the key for me!  Thanks so much :)

It shouldn't matter, and both should work. The justification settings apply to full paragraphs, and Justify Left means "Justify All, except for the last line which is Aligned Left."

Walt, I have the same problem, and have had it forever. If I select a paragraph and then select Justify Left, all of the paragraph is justified right and left, and the last line is not aligned left. I have two words on the last line. The first word is justified left, the second is justified right, leaving a big blank space between the two. Maybe the problem is that I have 2 paragraphs within the same Text Box?

Can you supply a sample Affinity document that demonstrates that? I would be interested in seeing it.

Sure. I just discovered that this only happens when I force a line break within a paragraph. (If I merely hit the Enter button, the program skips a space. I haven't tried changing the settings to "do not insert a space between lines within a paragraph when the Enter button is pressed", because I can't find out how/where to do that. Maybe you can help me with that. (Someday, someone will publish a User Manual for Affinity...maybe!)

Thanks for your help.

The comprehensive Help which is accessible from within the app is also available online.

Affinity Publisher 2 Help: Leading and inter-paragraph spacing

Quote

To adjust inter-paragraph spacing:

  • From the Paragraph panel, alter the Space Before Paragraph and Space After Paragraph settings in the Spacing section. You may also opt to tick the Sum space before and after and Ignore space for same styles checkboxes depending on how you would like your text spacing to appear in these circumstances.

‘Space After Paragraph’ is non-zero by default, so that you get a clear separation between paragraphs even when there is no first-line indent.

Thanks.

When you force a line break that way, your short line is no longer the last line of the paragraph, and therefore it is correctly and fully justified, just like every other non-last line.
