I'm using Photoshop 7.0 which should allow a variety of text alignment. When I look at the palette, the only alignment options available to me are left justify, right justify and center. I am not able to use the other options yet the full justification option appears in the help info and in the manual I bought. Any idea where it's gone?
In order to make the Justify All feature available, you need to create your type within a bounding box, also known as Paragraph type.
- Select the Type tool.
- Click and drag to create a bounding box.
- Select the Justify All option in the Paragraph palette (Choose Window > Paragraph).
- Start typing.
- When you are satisfied, commit your text editing by clicking the Checkmark icon located in the Type tool Option bar.
The type stays within the confines of the bounding box and is justified evenly on both the left and the right.
There are two ways to insert type into a Photoshop doc.
As Paragraph type as shown in the previous example or as Point type. To create point type, you click anywhere in the doc with the Type tool to set an insertion point. Using Point type creates a single line of type that doesn't wrap to the next line.
