Hello

 

 

I´m a regular user of Iwork 08.

 

 

In Pages, in a common text, how do i justify my text like in MS Word. I will try to write an example.

 

 

MS Word - Justified text

sldajskdjasdkasjdaskj

sldajskdjasdkasjdaskj

sldajskdjasdkasjdaskj

sldajskd.

 

 

 

 

Pages - Justified text

 

 

sldajskdjasdkasjdaskj

s  l  d  a  j  s  k  d  j a

s  l  d  a  j  s  k  d  j a

sldajs.

 

 

 

 

How do i prevent that Pages increases the space between characters? To solve, i must decrease the space between characteres wich, it´s a lot of work in a big document!

 

Thanks

    I'm puzzled.

     

    I'm unable to reproduce your example.

    Here I get :

    Look carefully the tab stops settings.

    Thanks.

     

    Can you see the diference between the text? In the first "indent" Pages increseases the charaters space to justify. In MS Word this also appened but, in the end of the line you press Enter and the last line gets the left aligment.

     

    Thanks for your help

    Pages doesn't offer a powerful algorithm for full justify.

     

    To get a better result, activate hyphenation as I did :

    CAUTION : My system is set to French so it applied the hyphenation according to French rules.

    Ok! Not the optimal solution but, it´s the possible one.

     

    It solves the problem

     

    Thanks for your help!

     

    Best regards

    Pages doesn't treat the justification by steps of one point, it insert extraneous spaces. I didn't check if it's fair enough to use the character  THIN SPACE.
