# Alignment

 Alignment is an option which specifies how the contents of a displayed object should be aligned within the available area in the object.
• The following settings can be given:
 Automatic default alignment based on environment Left left aligned Right right aligned Top top aligned Bottom bottom aligned Baseline baseline aligned Center centered {h,v} separate horizontal and vertical alignments x aligned at position x from -1 (left) to +1 (right) {x,y} aligned at horizontal and vertical positions x and y from -1 to +1 "c" aligned on the specified character in a grid
• is equivalent to .
• In Alignment->{x, y}, y values run from -1 at the bottom to +1 at the top.
• Alignment->spec indicates that the spec element of an object should align with the spec element of whatever object contains it.
• With , the alignment for the contents of an object will be based on the alignment specified for whatever object contains it.
• For objects such as Grid, Column and GraphicsGrid, the setting for Alignment can be a list that specifies alignments for individual columns, rows or elements.
