Aligning text

The Alignment topic controls the justification of the question elements that contain text. You can choose to align all the elements in the selected question or align an individual element. You can select the element in the drop-down or click the area of the question you want to align.

The available elements are: Name, Text, Grid Name, Grid Label, Code Label, Code Value, Data, Code Box, Code GoTo, Footnote and Answer Area.

  • You can specify the horizontal alignment as Left, Centre or Right.
Left alignment of code label text
Right alignment of code label text
  • You can specify the vertical alignment as Auto, Top, Middle or Bottom. 

The alignment set in the question style determines the default settings of the horizontal and vertical alignment.

The alignment can be set for each edition in the survey, for example, you can change the appearance to fit a paper or online survey.
