My understanding is this

Left
Justified

.....Right
Justified

But on re-reading I suspect your client may want the formayting done to ensure every line is the same length (you can do this with most word processing programs), i.e justified left and right simultaneously.

Best to ask your client to elaborate

I was taught that justified text: is as in a book, where every line is the same length, each line's length is altered by altering the word spacing, thus you finish up with a rectangular block of copy.

Ranged Left: is where, to use your own phrase, each line of text is forced to start from the left margin but each line finishes without altering its length.

Ranged Right: is where each line is forced to end at the right margin and similarly each line length remains unaltered.

Centred text is where the lines are left unaltered in length but the centre of each line is exactly above the centre of the one above and below.

The text in this reply is all ranged left. Have I made some sense?

In Corel´s text tools there are options "full justify" and "force justify", works with any font. If you have several rows of text and only one word is in the last row, full justify doesn´t force the last row as wide as other rows but force justify does. Hope I managed to make some sense...

Cheryl,

make sure that the text you are writing is in a textbox where the text goes onto next line automatically. To get text box, hold left mouse button as you draw a box - the text will wrap automatically once you get to end of box.

If you dont do this and you manually press return, dont think you can get effect you are after - although you will still be able to left, centre and right justify.

Same for illustrator

Hope helps

Martin

If you have the 'Help' installed in Photoshop look at >Type>Creating Type>To enter Paragraph Type. The process quite well explained, which is a surprise
