I want to create a journal report, exporting to Microsoft Word, with full justification of the margins. I have checked the "full" button under "justification" on the Page option, but the report created is only left margin justified. When I check the "left" button under "justification," I get the same report with left margin justification. What do I need to do to get full justification of the margins?

It's working properly here -- TMG 8.02, Win7 Ultimate x64, Word 2010. Is it possible that some style setting in Word is upsetting your applecart?

Robert -

Also Word 2010, I see only the first paragraph full justified; the remainder is left-justified. What are you doing differently? If the TMG document is inheriting the default Word template settings, it seems a waste of time to set them in TMG.

Full justification is easy to set in Word: Ctrl-A, Ctrl-J.

Dear Virginia,

You're quite right. Only the first paragraph is full-justified (I guess I didn't look past the first page). I've tried it with Word's default style set to "left" and to "full," and get the same thing either way. Word appears not to alter the TMG settings, and TMG appears not to set full justification for the whole document.

As you say, CTRL-A, CTRL-J fixes it.

I imagine this should be reported as a bug.

R.

Apparently the subject paragraph is correctly full justified, but not the children's. The problem has been reported.

Thanks -
