I use {align*} a lot, it seems that the block of {align*} are automatically centered. How could I move the block to the left margin?

Use the flalign option to get left


\begin{align*}% this is centered
a &=b
a &=b &% Need this tailing alignment char to get all the way left

Cool... But I want some blocks to be on the left, some blocks to be in the center... – SoftTimur Aug 9 '11 at 4:44
