Aligning and orienting cell contents
Aligning and orienting cell contents
Most of the time you will want your text to be square with the
left edge of a cell, but headings are much easier to read (and
stand out better) when they’re centered in a cell, and numbers
are easier to read when the last digit of every number is flush
with the right edge of a column. Similarly, if you want to create
a tall, thin cell with text written in a vertical line, you can do so
by typing your text in a cell and then changing the content’s
orientation. When your data doesn’t fit neatly within the width
of a cell, you can choose to have the text displayed on a new
line in the same cell. This setting, called text wrapping, treats a
cell like a small text box with narrow margins.
