Thank you for your post.
There are some alignment issues in WebDirect, but I'm unable to replicate your issue. This is what I did:
1. I created a label "This is a short sentence". I sized the label wider to stretch across the layout.
2. I duplicated the label twice giving me three instances of the label.
3. The first label was left-aligned, the second label was center-aligned, and the third label was right-aligned.
4. I accessed the file via WebDirect using Chrome under Windows 7, and the three labels are left, center, and right aligned.
5. I accessed the file via WebDirect using Safari under Mac OS X 10.9, and the three labels are left, center, and right aligned.
Let me know what I'm doing differently than you so I can replicate the issue.
Thanks for the detailed response. I just checked and it appears to be related to FireFox browser. It seems to work in IE and Chrome, but won't align in FireFox. Interesting.
Unfortunately, I have to use FireFox because it appears to be the only browser which will allow me to print the contents of the Web Viewer in a frame. I generate a complex HTML report which displays in the Web Viewer in a frame. Firefox allows me to print the frame contents. IE doesn't even show the Web Viewer contents. Chrome only prints a screen shot of the page, not the frame contents.
Thank you for the additional information.
At this time, Firefox is not a supported browser with WebDirect. With that said, I am able to replicate the issue under Firefox where all text objects are left-aligned. Text objects will not right-align nor center-align.
For more information regarding supported browsers, see Chapter 4 (page 28) of the FileMaker 13 WebDirect Guide:
Thanks for the additional feedback. Unfortunately, like I mentioned, I have to use FireFox to be able to save/print HTML reports. Are you aware of a better way to do a report that is up to 6 hierarchical levels deep with large variances in field content size?
If I use spaces in the text objects, I get indentation. This works for both field names and text objects. This also works with Firefox.
