text-align-last

This is an experimental technology
Because this technology's specification has not stabilized, check the compatibility table for the proper prefixes to use in various browsers. Also note that the syntax and behavior of an experimental technology is subject to change in future versions of browsers as the spec changes.

Summary

The text-align-last CSS property describes how the last line of a block or a line, right before a forced line break, is aligned.

Syntax

Formal syntax: auto | start | end | left | right | center | justify
text-align-last: auto
text-align-last: start
text-align-last: end
text-align-last: left
text-align-last: right
text-align-last: center
text-align-last: justify

text-align-last: inherit

Values

auto
The affected line is aligned per the value of text-align, unless text-align is justify, in which case the effect is the same as setting text-align-last to left.
start
The same as left if direction is left-to-right and right if direction is right-to-left.
end
The same as right if direction is left-to-right and left if direction is right-to-left.
left
The inline contents are aligned to the left edge of the line box.
right
The inline contents are aligned to the right edge of the line box.
center
The inline contents are centered within the line box.
justify
The text is justified. Text should line up their left and right edges to the left and right content edges of the paragraph.

}
