The Kindle Paperwhite allows users to carry out a degree of customization that is designed to enhance the reading experience. One of the things that you may wish to change on yours is the text alignment. The default mode on the Paperwhite is the “justified mode.” You may wish to change this to left align the text on your screen. But, how do you do it? How do you change the text alignment on a Kindle Paperwhite?

Available text alignment options

Available alignments on the Kindle Paperwhite are left aligned and justified. So, these are the only options that you are going to be able to choose from.

Some books will not allow you to change the alignment on a Kindle Paperwhite

This is one of the things that you are likely to come across while trying to change the text alignment on your Kindle Paperwhite. Some books do not allow you to change the alignment. Should you try to do so, you will get a message stating that; “this book does not support Left Alignment and other Enhance Typography options.” Should that happen, then you will be out of luck. You will have to simply get used to the default alignment for that book. This has happened to me on a number of occasions. However, failing to change the alignment is hardly a game changer and I have continued to enjoy reading books on my Paperwhite.
