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?

  • 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___

  • @MatthewRead I Agree, great question! Anki including AnkiDroid needs more attention, it is by far the best thing since sliced bread! And thanks to google i found this answer that helped me! Mar 12, 2018 at 21:33

    @MichalCiechan Appreciate your comment, even years later -- SE has since done away with the "Too Localized" on-hold reason, and if users of the app find this info useful then it should definitely be here. I've cleaned up the older comments. Mar 13, 2018 at 17:23

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.
