How to align text

Hi,

I have created my first QlikSense app and are having trouble with text alignment. In the attached picture you will see a simple table showing Tag Numbers. The first tag number has the value "1" and because Qlik thinks this is a number it is aligned right, but I want it to be aligned left. How can I do that? I know it is a possibility to use the Text function in the Load Script, but isn't there a more direct way to do this?

Regards,

Øystein Birkeland

Re: How to align text

Hi Oystein,

There isn't a specific control for this at the moment but if you want to force them all to be treated as text then you could try the Text() function.

Text([Tag Number])

This will place everything in the column to the left hand side. Not ideal but it will work.
