Definition and Usage

The text-align-last property specifies how to align the last line of a text.

Notice that the text-align-last property sets the alignment for all last lines within the selected element. So, if you have a <div> with three paragraphs in it, text-align-last will apply to the last line of EACH of the paragraphs. To use text-align-last on only the last paragraph in the container, you can use :last child, see example below.

Note: In Edge/Internet Explorer the text-align-last property only works on text that has "text-align: justify".

Default value: auto
