Fix Justify (text block) *** UPDATED Oct-01-2012 ***

Post by [RZ] » Tue Aug 14, 2012 7:27 am

[rz] Fix Justify v1.0.1

The extreme lightweight solution for justified text blocks with compatibility output format.

Do you have complex texts with fonts, sizes, letter space, line height and the like?
Do you want that these texts appear the same in IE9, in IE8 or in FF as in your workspace?
These texts are such specific cases that you cannot define a "normal" css style in the wb's style manager?

As you may know, if you select a custom line height or if you select a compatibility output format you won't be able to justify the text block.

Some users reported this as a bug (me too, so don't worry!), but in honor of the truth, it is not an issue at all.
Is the way that css works...

If you want to create almost pixel perfect text alignments, you need to divide each line in divs; but only text blocks can be justified, not lines. This is the price...

Well, we can say that this WAS a downside, past times; now you have at hand this add-on for all of the above.

Supports all major browsers: IEquirks, IE7, IE8, IE9, Chrome, FireFox, Opera, Safari, Maxthon, Lunascape, and still count...

Sample project file included.


* This update fixes some bugs with links, bold and italic fonts.


DOWNLOAD

HTML 4.01 Transitional
W3C compliant


How to use?

1.a Just make your texts in WB as you usually do.
1.b Optionally, you can select the letter spacing and/or line height.
2. Of course, click on the justify icon in the toolbar.
3. Now the (almost) last thing you must take in count to make it work...
3.a Open the Text Properties dialog
3.b In General tab / Compatibility / Output format, select the "Use <div> with position for each line" option.
4. And then, put this extension on top and indicate the texts (the object id) that you want to justify. As simple as it is!

Hope you can find this useful.
Enjoy!

Great job, I like it very much. Thank you for that extension.

You should mention that it is necessary to make the line breaks inside a text block with <shift><return> instead of <return> only.

Thank you for your feedback, appreciated.

This is not necessary at all. Just type your text as you usually do.

But if I don't do that, sometimes the result looks like this.

[rz], I figured out something about the extension.
If a link is specified for the text (all of it) the justify fix doesn't work!

from the attached info file:
4. And then, put this extension on top and indicate the texts (the object id) that you want to justify. As simple as it is!

please be sure you moved the extension on top of the other objects.
check this out in the object manager panel.
also be sure, if you entered more than one text object, their ids are comma separated without spaces; as it is indicated in the properties dialog.
thanks.

I'm using an older version of this great extension. When I try to download the updated version, the link in the first post leads me to the download of "rz-fixtables.zip". Who is wrong, me or the link?
