I cannot reproduce your problem. Are you sure the text block is selected?
My justified alignment is not working properly either.
I would like to stretch the text across the full length of the box, which works fine as long as there are no space included. As soon as i insert a space, the 2 seperate words are bunched together on either side of the text box.
this is how i would like it... A n d y M a c r a e
this is how it looks with out a space... A n d y M a c r a e
and this is how it looks with a space... Andy Macrae
note that i need the space between the 2 words to be as obvious as possible.
Justified text works in Fireworks like it does in CSS. It sucks. :-) the justification is based on the spaces between words in a line of text. Try using the tracking setting instead. To create even space between characters.
