Text Alignment
assigns a text alignment to the selected cells.
  • Alignment can be at any point along the width of each line of text, specified by a percentage: 25% is roughly halfway between left-aligned and centered, while 75% is roughly halfway between centered and right-aligned. Other alignment points can be specified using the Option Inspector.
  • This submenu sets the option TextAlignment on the selected cells or on text within a cell.
