A facility for Justifying Text in Text Capsules

    Could we have a facility for justifying text in capsules? I.e. left, right and centre justification? Centre justification would be useful for e.g. inserting equations between paragraphs of text. A series of typed non-break space characters doesn#t sem to work.

      This is not likely to be something we will allow, since we have very limited engineering resources and we try to focus on improvements that will help the largest number of writers across the site.

        Ok I understand you have a lot on your plate with all the changes!
        Is there any workaround to this? Leading whitespace characters seem to get stripped out.

          I'm not sure, but I will check with the Team.

          It looks like your best options are to try a Code Capsule or the Callout Capsule, or to put the equations into an image for the look you're going for.

    A workaround method to left-justify, center, or right-justify text can be done with the table capsule. Edit the capsule and remove all columns and rows until you have just one column and one row. Then put your text in the single remaining block and specify the justification you want for that text.

      That sounds like a good idea.
