I like the look of justified text, it just looks cleaner and is easier to read, but when you take out the option of manipulating the hyphens you get these crazy ugly spaces in between words.  I would like to see Emma add this to your paragraph settings. :)

In the image below I have used align justify in the center portion of the text, as you can see there are spacing issues when using this.

Is this something that has been addressed yet? My boss wants everything to be done with full justification, but I have not found a way to eliminate the wide gaps between some words while others look like normal print. I need to find a way to resolve this as soon as possible. Thanks!

Hi there!  Thanks for your patience with us here.  As Katie spells out below, editor’s alignment tools are a part of another company’s product we tap into.  We are working on making improvements to the editor overall, but for that specifically we wouldn't have direct control over it, until that 3rd party fixes it on their end.

Hey again, Brandi! The editor’s alignment tools are a part of another company’s product we tap into, so we would need to request this update from them. It isn’t something we can build or adjust from our end.

I’m marking this as Not Planned for now, and we'll see if we can submit a request for them to make that update down the line.
