Remove formatting doesn't clear text alignment
I have just copy/pasted some text from a Word doc to a new WordPress page. In word the text was center aligned. I want to remove any alignment so the page automatically defaults back to the alignment set in my CSS (justified). I selected all the text in my WordPress page and hit the ‘remove formatting’ button though the text alignment remains. Even if I select all the text and justify it within the visual editor the ‘align=”center”‘, although overridden, remains in the HTML code???
I was banking on just hitting the ‘remove formatting’ button to clear text alignment set in my Blogger posts when I migrate over though this is making me nervous that I’m going to have to take out each tag manually in the HTML editor for every.single.post! I know I could select my text and change it in the visual editor though I’d prefer for my CSS to set the alignment rather than using an in-line style.
Anyone know why removing formatting doesn’t clear alignment? More importantly, anyone know a way around this? Or how to get in WordPress’ ear to change it 🙂
