Default Shortcut Key: Ctrl+F11


Macro function: AlignSmooth()


The Align Smooth command adjusts the current line to be flush against both the left and right margins. The right margin is determined according to the current Text Width. The cursor is moved to the line below upon completion.


Spaces are inserted alternately in the left, center and right portions of each line to minimize the appearance of rivers and valleys in the justified text.


If text is selected, all lines within the selected range are affected.


This command will not cause words to be wrapped across lines.  Use the Reformat command, with the desired Justification Style, for this purpose.


bm1If the Align Smooth command is issued when a columnar selection is in force, the effect of the command will be to smooth align the selected text within the extent of the rectangular selection.
