Align report text for optimal readability in QuickbaseJun 08, 2018
Does the default justification of data or text in your QuickBase reports not match your expectations? If that's the case you can easily override the default. This will ensure smooth readability and understanding of your brilliant reports.

- Does your report 'read' easily from left to right?
