I'd like to justify the text that is in the cell of a table (as I would and could in the main body of the text).

However, when I right-click > alignment, the only possible options are Left, Right, Center, Decimal.

Go into the table settings instead, where you have set the width of the column. There you can select Justified from the Horizontal alignment drop down.

LyX table settings

  • Note that the "Justified" option is absent until you specify some width. (This is probably why I had missed this option previously.)
