Text Alignment

Easily realign text to components with text alignment classes.

<p class="text-justify">Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit. Aliquam suscipit et mauris suscipit fermentum. Mauris massa dolor, mollis id augue ac, pretium faucibus massa. Ut posuere efficitur justo et luctus. Integer eget aliquam magna. In in vulputate nulla. Vivamus tristique leo id odio efficitur interdum eu ut metus.</p>

For left, right, and center alignment, responsive classes are available that use the same viewport width breakpoints as the grid system. Please refer to how our breakpoint nomenclature is used.

Instead of using left/right designators, the text alignment utilities use start/end designators to match up with the flexbox utilities.

Start aligned text on all viewport sizes.

Center aligned text on all viewport sizes.

End aligned text on all viewport sizes.

End aligned text on viewports sized SM (small) or wider.

End aligned text on viewports sized MD (medium) or wider.

End aligned text on viewports sized LG (large) or wider.

End aligned text on viewports sized XL (extra-large) or wider.

<p class="text-start">Start aligned text on all viewport sizes.</p>
<p class="text-center">Center aligned text on all viewport sizes.</p>
<p class="text-end">End aligned text on all viewport sizes.</p>

<p class="text-sm-end">End aligned text on viewports sized SM (small) or wider.</p>
<p class="text-md-end">End aligned text on viewports sized MD (medium) or wider.</p>
<p class="text-lg-end">End aligned text on viewports sized LG (large) or wider.</p>
<p class="text-xl-end">End aligned text on viewports sized XL (extra-large) or wider.</p>

Text Wrap and Truncate

Prevent text from wrapping with a .text-nowrap class.

This text should overflow the parent.
<div class="card card-body text-nowrap" style="width: 8rem;">
    This text should overflow the parent.
</div>

For longer content, you can add a .text-truncate class to truncate the text with an ellipsis. Requires display: block; or display: inline-block;.

Praeterea iter est quasdam res quas ex communi.
Praeterea iter est quasdam res quas ex communi.
<!-- Block -->
<div class="row">
  <div class="col-2 text-truncate">
      Praeterea iter est quasdam res quas ex communi.
  </div>
</div>

<!-- Inline block -->
<div class="d-inline-block text-truncate" style="max-width: 150px;">
  Praeterea iter est quasdam res quas ex communi.
</div>

Text Transform

Transform text in components with text capitalization classes.

Lowercased text.

Uppercased text.

CapiTaliZed text.

<p class="text-lowercase">Lowercased text.</p>
<p class="text-uppercase">Uppercased text.</p>
<p class="text-capitalize">CapiTaliZed text.</p>

Note how text-capitalize only changes the first letter of each word, leaving the case of any other letters unaffected.

Font Weight and Italics

Quickly change the weight (boldness) of text or italicize text.

Light weight text.

Normal weight text.

Bold text.

Italic text.

<p class="font-weight-light">Light weight text.</p>
<p class="font-weight-normal">Normal weight text.</p>
<p class="font-weight-bold">Bold text.</p>
<p class="font-italic">Italic text.</p>
