I like create standard format in my document like:

-All the text are justify until I swap this part of text only (center, right, left);

-Standard margin of document (top, bottom, left, right);

-Standard font type;

Example: I'm new these, so in all my pages, I put

    Text, text, text ....

If I think on long-term, it is not feasible.

Font type I not change (I don't know how to do).

Margin I not change too (I use a standard a4paper)(but I need in these measures: top=3,bottom=2,left=3,right=2).

  • there really isn't any accepted international standard, so you need to say exactly what you consider to be "standard", particularly with respect to margins. however, in every "basic" document class i'm aware of, justified text is the default. Feb 25, 2015 at 16:05

Rather than re-creating the wheel, it's best to just base your document on one of the standard classes. The article class is about as standard as you can get, but memoir and the KOMA-script classes are good options as well. When using article, you can specify the margins with the geometry package, but the layout is already justified.



Note: the lipsum package is just for dummy text.

  • I use the \documentclass{article}, but it not justify for me. :( This is my documentclass \documentclass[a4paper,12pt]{article} Feb 26, 2015 at 17:45
  • @LeonardoAlvesAlmeida If you try with exactly the code I posted above does it look the same?
