Re: Pango alignment versus wrapping

I think justify has to do with the alignment of wrapped lines to each other, not to alignment of the entire text with the boundary of the containing label.

In the description of Pango::Alignment at I found this:

If the Pango::Layout is set to justify using Pango::Layout::set_justify(), this only has effect for partial lines.

The description of PangoAlignment in pango (i.e. not pangomm) has a similar sentence. Don't know if it applies to your code, or if it's a feature or a bug.

Pango::Layout will display text in a Gtk::Label with PANGO_ALIGN_LEFT alignment as long as is_wrapped() returns FALSE. When something causes wrapping to occur, Pango::Layout then displays the text as though PANGO_ALIGN_CENTER had been requested, even though get_alignment() continues to return PANGO_ALIGN_LEFT.

Is this a feature or a bug?

If it’s a feature, is there a way to override it, so that PANGO_ALIGN_LEFT remains in effect?

I am better able to retract what I did not say than what I did.
