Lesson 9.2. Changing Text Alignment
Figure 9-3. Examples of different alignment options.
Figure 9-4. The alignment buttons on the toolbar only affect how text is aligned inside a control. You have to manually align a control to the left, center, or right of a form or report by clicking and dragging.
This lesson explains how to align a control's text to the left, center, or right. Figure 9-3 gives a better idea of what the various alignments look like. Alignment only affects what's inside of a control: If you apply center formatting to a text box, Access will center the text inside the text boxit won't center the text box control on the form or report, as shown in Figure 9-4. If you want to align a control to the left, center, or right of a form or report, you'll have to do it the old-fashioned wayby clicking and dragging the control.
