How do I simultaneously left-align and right-align?

Asked by zina (1653points) February 24th, 2008

I’m making a concert program – where the piece titles appear on the left, the composer’s names appear on the right on the same line, and then beneath that performers are centered in the middle. And that repeats over and over.

Right now I’ve tabbed composers over, but it would look MUCH better right-aligned. Can I do this without creating columns?

Ideally it would be great to know how to do this in Pages, but otherwise in Word.

In word, you can create a right-aligned tabstop on the right margin of the page… I’d imagine you could do the same in pages.

I’d create two tabstops… a centered one in the middle of the page, and a right-aligned on on the right margin, so you’d do
title <tab><tab>composer<return><tab>performers<return>

Why don’t you want to use columns?
If it was me (Word user), I’d make a table and then get rid of the border (select the table and then go to “Borders and Shading”)

I would just be to add a simple text box that is right-aligned

Like Andrew, I recommend a right-aligned Tab stop… Every decent word processor program for the last 20 years allows you to set tabs to align left, center, right or to a decimal.
