Hi friends,

could be possible to add a basic feature to the text: "Justify text"?
This is very important for my work.

Maybe this would need to go along with automatic line wrapping, which too we don't have currently.

Is it very difficult?

Thank you. :)

I vote for this feature.
However there are some details to take into account.
1) Text should never be allowed to go farther than page margin. Or, if this could be disabled as an option, never should go past the page edges. Whenever this happens, wrapping should proceed and, if enabled, the paragraph should be justified.
2) Two new types of text should be introduced: a) A fixed size box (with editable size of course, but once selected it would keep its size until it is resized); b) A foot note box asociated with rest, note or chord
3) A floating text box not linked to any score element but atached to specified coordinates on the page would be also interesting, particularly for preliminary notes, biographies, and so on.
4) Tabs should also be interesting.
