Unfortunately, I don't think there is. You can center and right-align lines, but that's it as far as I know. Alignment's stored in the font object...

make object! [ name: "CGTriumvirate" style: none size: 12 color: 0.0.0 offset: 2x2 space: 0x0 align: 'center valign: 'middle shadow: none colors: none ] and the space word there changes the spacing between letters, so that could possibly be used to give justification. I'd think you'd need two faces for each line of your text though, which would be possible, just not easy. -- Carl Read
