Hi all, 

Im currently align text so the center comes from the hyphen please see example below.

Is there a way you can do this without me manually moving these around?

         

                  Welcome Journey - Example 1
          Re-engagement emails - Test 3

Automated welcome Journey - Example 3 and Test 4

 

Thanks

Use tabulation, choose “align on” as shown below But in your exemple, the second line will be aligned on the hyphen between Re and engagement, so you should use an en dash or an em dash instead of a hyphen to align your text.

Select your text, then choose the same arrow as in my screenshot (the fourth one), set the location in the ruler either by entering a value or by placing the tab stop on the ruler (it will be the place were the hyphens will be). In the “ align on” field, type an hyphen (or an en/em dash).

Once it's done, place the text cursor at the beginning of the paragraph et type a tab, repeat for each paragraph.

Can you show the same screenshot, WITH the hidden characters?

And please, use the picture icon (right of the chain icon) to embed the picture in the post.

 

Sorry, I forgot one important thing : the text must be left aligned…

You are missing the last step: you must type a tab at the beginning of each paragraph, and see my last (modified) answer : the text must be left aligned
