Yola needs to add justified to their editor since you have left, right, and center. You need to add justified it is a problem because my text is messy and I would like to have the justified function to edit my paragraphs for it can be even with the page.

Hi Christy

I can understand why you would expect this, but there is a reason why this option is not available on our text editor.

Justifying is a convention in printed media but not on the web. On the web text should be right, left or center aligned. I know that a neat block of text looks nice at first glance, but it is very difficult to actually read the text on the screen. The eye needs the jagged edges to keep it's place when reading from the screen.

So if your intention is for people to read what you have written I encourage you to reconsider whether you really want to justifying your text. See: http://www.netmechanic.com/news/vol5/... for more information.

If you decide that this is what you want to do, it is possible using HTML. I encourage you to take a look at professionally designed websites next time you are browsing the web. Even newspaper sites such as the New York Times do not justify text on their webpages.
