Centre alignment not working in iBooks for iPad?


I’ve spent a bit of time trying to centre my text in some eBooks recently. On every device I have experimented with, my text is turning up in the centre (exactly as I want) except when I view it on an iPad. WHY!!!! Is it my code? Am I missing something?? After smashing my head on the desk a few times I found the answer. The answer is… its not my code but rather a setting within iBooks.

If you are developing eBooks for the iPad and find the alignment of your text is not exactly what you were expecting go to: Settings -> iBooks and turn off ‘Full Justification’, you may then find you will get the results you were expecting.

  1. It was that simple you must have been so annoyed when you found that out! shame they don’t have a similar feature for the pictures. You may want to add these instructions in on the inside cover of the book as this seems to be a default setting within iBooks. you may want to put “if you see this message justified to the left then change the setting within iBooks settings”

    Apologies for any spelling mistakes
