Default How do I fully justify text in a table cell?

I would like to be able to justify text in a cell so that the text is aligned
with both left and right margins. If there are two lines in one cell, the
first line having 3 words and the second line having 4 words, I would like
the first line to increase the size of the space between the words to fit
within the same margins as the second line.

Thumbs up Answer: How do I fully justify text in a table cell?

To fully justify text in a table cell in Microsoft Word, follow these steps:
  1. Select the cell or cells that you want to justify.
  2. Right-click on the selected cell(s) and choose "Table Properties" from the context menu.
  3. In the Table Properties dialog box, click on the "Cell" tab.
  4. Under "Vertical alignment," select "Top" or "Center" depending on your preference.
  5. Under "Text alignment," select "Justified."
  6. Click on the "Options" button next to "Text alignment."
  7. In the "Justification" section, select "Distribute text evenly between the margins."
  8. Click "OK" to close the "Cell Options" dialog box.
  9. Click "OK" again to close the "Table Properties" dialog box.

Your text should now be fully justified within the selected cell(s), with both left and right margins aligned. If there are multiple lines of text within a cell, Word will automatically adjust the spacing between words to ensure that each line fits within the same margins.

Maeb was telling us:
Maeb nous racontait que :

I would like to be able to justify text in a cell so that the text is
aligned with both left and right margins. If there are two lines in
one cell, the first line having 3 words and the second line having 4
words, I would like the first line to increase the size of the space
between the words to fit within the same margins as the second line.


Apply a "Justify" alignment to the content of the cell.
To apply this to all cells, select all cells and apply the justify alignment
(Format Paragraphs.. Alignment or from the toolbar, the last of the 4
alignment button that come after the 3 font attribute buttons).

While your cursor is in that cell, click on the "Justify" button on the
Formatting toolbar.

If pressing Ctrl+J does not do this for you, check to make sure that there
are not paragraph breaks between the lines. Note, however, that for
headings, centering will look better, especially in narrow columns, where
justification can leave excessively large spaces between words.

If you want to force justification on a single paragraph, you might try
"distributed" alignment (Ctrl+Shift+J).
It's usually used only for Asian text though, and spreads out the letters a
bit.

I sometimes use it to fit text exactly in a given space, and then increase
the font size until it looks nice.

To remove it, just apply some other alignment (left, justified...).

Greetings,
Klaus
