Full justification problem

  ykzn 14:00 30 Jan 2010

I recently typed a microsoft office 2007 word document, using sans serif font. When I selected the whole text and clicked the full justify button, almost nothing happened, i.e., the text did not get fully justified. I tried to do it in my other PC which has MS office 2003, and it was also like this, unsuccessful.

Can anyone please help me out with this?

Possibly a font problem; try using another font and then applying Full Justification.

As I understand it "sans serif" is not a font, but a style of font, i.e. Microsoft Sa Serif, Comic San Serif. San Serif = Without Serif, those little twiddly finishing touches to the ends of the character like those found in Times New Roman, but not in Arial.

Hope this helps, Peter.

It depends what you mean by fully justified. For example, the last line of a paragraph will not usually be right justified if there is insufficient text on that line.

What happens if you type the document with the justify button set?

And Peter is correct - sans serif is not a font.
