On AnkiDroid, all text in the flash cards is center aligned. Is there a way to make it left aligned? I'm looking for a solution that does not involve editing each card. For example, is there a setting to make the text left aligned?

This question is unlikely to help any future visitors; it is only relevant to a small geographic area, a specific moment in time, or an extraordinarily narrow situation that is not generally applicable to the worldwide audience of the internet.

Although the developer of Ankidroid is a valued member here, this question seems too specific and may be better asked on the official forum. I vote to close this as too localized. –  Flow Apr 29 '12 at 22:26

"This question is unlikely to ever help any future visitors; it is only relevant to a small geographic area, a specific moment in time, or an extraordinarily narrow situation that is not generally applicable to the worldwide audience of the internet." -- I can't see how this applies here. –  Erik Apr 30 '12 at 8:44
    
"Is there a setting" questions are generally answerable by looking at the settings. Having a question here about it doesn't seem to add any value for users of the application. Often these are asked as feature requests in disguise, and those should be directed to the developer rather than us. –  Matthew Read Apr 30 '12 at 19:44
    
Actually many users keep asking the same question on the forum... –  Nicolas Raoul Jan 26 '13 at 7:39
    
Update on the closed question, a workaround: You can always put spaces to the ends of the lines to make them equally long. This will manually left align the text. Example: List of fruits: 1 Nut______ 2 Pineapple 3 Orange___ –  geffchang May 13 '13 at 11:28

Yes, you can align text to the left.

For now there is no WYSIWYG editor, but you can do what you want with some simple HTML:

AnkiDroid left align

AnkiDroid left align

If you don't want to do it for each card, modify the card template using Anki Desktop.

That's why I don't use AnkiDroid –  Deqing Nov 11 at 1:30
    
@Deqing: You will be glad to know that code.google.com/p/ankidroid/issues/detail?id=635 has been fixed and there is now a way to align left :-) I updated my answer. –  Nicolas Raoul Nov 11 at 3:18
    
Tried adding <p align=left> in both AnkiDroid 2.3.2 and Anki desktop, still not working :( –  Deqing Nov 11 at 3:50
    
@Deqing: Please post a new question, including screenshots of your card template and of the content of all fields, thanks! –  Nicolas Raoul Nov 11 at 4:00
