I'm trying to left align text in card but with no luck.

Tried changing text-align to left in Anki desktop, the card in desktop working fine, but it doesn't affect the card in mobile - it's still center aligned.

Also tried add html tag as follows, but still not working. (AnkiDroid version 2.3.2)

use p align still centered
use p align / still centered (click images for larger variants)

  • Please also post a screenshot of your card template (seen in Anki Desktop). See youtube.com/watch?v=F1j1Zx0mXME Nov 11, 2014 at 7:55
  • Big thanks! Turning off "Simple interface" fixed the problem.

To use any HTML markup but simple bold/italics in cards, you need to turn off the option Advanced -> Simple interface.
