Text alignment

Easily realign text to components with text alignment classes.

{% capture example %}

For left, right, and center alignment, responsive classes are available that use the same viewport width breakpoints as the grid system.

{% capture example %}

Text wrapping and overflow

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

{% capture example %}

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

{% capture example %}

Text transform

Transform text in components with text capitalization classes.

{% capture example %}

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.

{% capture example %}

Monospace

Change a selection to our monospace font stack with .text-monospace.
