ePub body text is not justified


I am using the latest version of Scrivener on an early 2015 MacBook Pro and outputting to ePub.

Body text style in the project is Justified, and compile is set to “As Is”, but still I don’t get justified text in the ePub output.

I have read other posts and tried both, with and with out As Is ticked, and setting the format to justified in the Compile Formatting panel, neither works.

Any suggestions?

Many thanks in advance to all replies.


In which software or reader are you viewing the software? Text justification in ePub is a feature of the reader rather than of the text itself. For instance, in iBooks on the Mac, you choose whether text should be viewed as justified via the Preferences. Some e-readers don’t support justified text at all because it is slower to lay out.

All the best,

Aaaah, that explains why nothing worked!

Thank you for that Keith, hopefully readers on Amazon and other eBook sites will realise this, I may add a note in the intro pages.
