Hi All,

I'm designing some covers, with this as my desired end result: (source: http://www.harmonic-mixing.com)


I'm nearly there, but I can NOT get the right column to align to the right, when aligning the left column to the left. I'm using 2 linked textboxes for this, and the text comes from an iTunes playlist import.

I thought making two boxes (one for the left, one for the right; allowing for different alignment!) could work, but I can not drag only a part of the playlist import to the left box, and the rest to a second box...


So close, yet so far!

Hi bsniekers,
Each track is a paragraph. So you may select paragraphs from the right box then right align them:


Don't forget that left or right alignment is part of paragraph settings not part of text box settings so moving a paragraph from left box to right one doesn't change the type of text alignment for this paragraph (or track). You have to change it "by hand".
Hope this helps.
