    Hi –

    Thanks for getting in touch. Are you working on sonphuoc.com or a different site.

    Which block type are you trying to justify the text inside?

    Hi there,

    Justify was removed from the Core WordPress software in version 4.7 over two years ago. It still existed in the My Sites editor because that editor was our own, not part of Core.

    The new block editor on WordPress.com is the same editor that is used in Core, and it looks like the Justify option is broken there. It will need to be fixed there first, before it will work again on WordPress.com. I do need to point out, though, that the button is unlikely to come back – looking at the current discussion they’ll likely only make it so the shortcuts work again.

    You can follow the discussions from the Core team around this in https://github.com/WordPress/gutenberg/issues/8450 and https://github.com/WordPress/gutenberg/issues/8433

    For now on WordPress.com you’ll need to switch back to the classic editor if you need to use the Justify alignment option.

    Hi there,

    Justify only works on the classic editor block:

    It has already been reported and I have added yours as well. You can follow and contribute to that issue here:

    Thank you guys so much.

    The new editor seems good but without justify, it’s suck.

    So sad :(

    @nsphuoc I just want to add, if you intend to justify all of your content paragraphs, you can do that with CSS instead once and for all.

    You can even make it so they stop justifying after the screen gets too narrow for it to look good. Something like this added to Customize > CSS should do the trick:

    .entry-content p {
         text-align:justify;
    }

    Best :)

    @supernovia thank you, but the problem is I’m using free plan. if I want to use CSS, I must upgrade to premium plan. How smart WordPress is!

    This new editor is very complicated for those who just want to have a good writing experience. The old editor, and I mean the oldest one, found in wp-admin, is more complete and easy to use. How an editor does not have a justify option? And if I put the “classic block” the “keyboard shortcut” is empty. I’m very disappointed!

    I tested, and I can use the shortcut for justify the text, but I know the shortcut; if someone does not know, how he will find a way to make it work if the keybord shortcut is empty?

    In this “classic block” if I try ti insert an image, I can not resize it easily…

    We do not have the “Text” tab in this classic block and the “distraction-free writing mode”, and it is very tight.

    The developers of this new editor should think a bit more about the ordinary user’s writing experience. Why does the activation of the classic block simply not mimic the Calypso editor environment?

    @radtrad, Justify was removed in the original WP-Admin editor two years ago. And the shortcut keys not working in the new editor is a bug, as we’ve said above.

    If you’re having other trouble with the new editor, please open your own thread at https://en.forums.wordpress.com/?new=1 and please include a link to your site and/or the exact post you’re working on, and we can help you there. But if you post into threads where we’re already helping someone else on a different issue you make it harder for us to help both them and you.

    Ok, I just think the problems were related.

    And the problem with the shortcut keys is not just that they are not working – they are, in the classic block – but that when we click the button related to them nothing appears.

    I’m also using a free wordpress.com plan, as I assume a couple of other folks above are… you (staff) say the justify option was removed years ago from the editor, but if you still choose the classic editor the justify option is there, complete with a teeny little icon near the center/left/right options.

    In the new editor though, that option is gone. You can edit the HTML of each block manually, and add the justification to each paragraph, but the new editor chokes on it a bit and notifies that there is an issue. If you publish anyway, the text will be justified as indicated in the html.

    Now, there *is* a part of the new editor in the advanced section that says “Additional CSS Class” or something very similar… I try to add something like

    .p {text-align: justify;}

    along with every other version of CSS justification that I can find, and none of it works. I’m guessing that the box for additional CSS Class code can’t be used for that – but if any other fine readers out here have discovered otherwise, please let us all know.

    And I’m following the other suggested threads… I just wanted to voice some support and agreement with the other fellas who were saying that justifying is in the old wordpress.com editor but not in the new one… just in case it was an oversight, or bug, or if there’s a CSS Class alternative. Carry on. :-)
