Full Justify Text

Full Justify Text

I am new to Corel Photo Paint.   I am trying to create a text box that is full justified.  The problem is I cannot get the text to wrap at the end of a line, it just continues on and expands the box so I have to do a hard return at the end of each line.  Also, when I justify it stretches out the lines that are short.

RE: Full Justify Text

Photo Paint isnt the best tool for doing this sort of work.  If you have a lot of text, you might be better off creating your image, and leaving room for your text, then importing the image into Corel Draw.  There the tools allow you to use "Paragraph Text" which is exactly what you are looking for.  Draw will be better for print, as the text will be sharper and cleaner, no matter what the size.  PhotoPaint will tend to blur smaller text.  If it is destined for web only, after you have the text in Draw just like you want, you can right click on the Paragraph and "Convert to Bitmap" (or under the Text menu).  This will allow you to export the entire thing back into PP for final editing, or you can just leave the text alone, and Export the entire image as a single JPG or GIF file directly from Corel Draw.  Of course PhotoPaint will give you more options, but they can be addressed at that time if you still have questions.  Hope this helps.
