Alignment Brings Order to Chaos


2 of 8

Left Alignment

Left edge alignment is a common text alignment

Edge alignment lines up text or objects along their top, bottom, left, or right edges. Left-aligned text (with ragged right edges) is one of the most familiar alignments.

The text in this layout example is all left aligned within each column. The headline is aligned with the left edge of the center column of text. The page number in the upper left corner is both left-aligned with the text near the bottom of the column and aligned with the bottom edge of the rule above the headline, an example of horizontal alignment.
