Can't find simple paragraph\text alignment toolbar

I know there is a keyboard shortcut and probably other methods but I used to have a simple toolbar on top to align text right\center\left with one click, which was great.

 

For some reason, I can't find it. I set all toolbars to view but it is still gone. Am I missing something? I have included a screenshot of what I see.

Hi @Giovanni23132686p79k: It appears to be hiding under the Text Formatting toolbar (with all the Ts), which is undocked. Second row, far left. Grab the dark gray left edge of the Text Formatting toolbar, and dock it anywhere along the toolbar. When you see a blue bar, reelase the mouse. (As a heads up, the Direction toolbar is also undocked. You can redock it the same way.) ~Barb

Barb: We are always happy to help.

… and also to add some caveats about what those buttons are actually doing (and Barb knows this, but didn't burden you with it).

What most of those tools do is apply an override to the Properties of the selected Paragraph or Characters. Unless the catalog is updated, or a new Format name saved off, your re-alignment is apt to vanish without warning on some future document edit. This typically happens when the parent Paragraph Format is updated, and Update-Style is selected: bye-bye overrides.

For a casual render&forget document, not an issue.

Interesting. I'll keep that in mind as I go through and if I have problems, thanks.
