Using Calibre I have tried to use ´text-align: left´ in CSS but viewing the resulting epub-file with iBooks the result is still justified text. How can I change to left alignment?
Do you have "Justify text" turned on in iBooks -> Preferences -> General? That will override the CSS settings.– beakerOct 28, 2018 at 15:54
I don't think text-align left and Justify text have anything to do with one another. Justification is usually controlled by the reading system, while text-align left is the default behavior for text. The css property text-align mainly has to do with alignment inside of a box (usually a single line). You could use another css property to scoot the text to the left or the right (margin, etc).
