<lvlJc> (Justification)

This element specifies the type of justification used on a numbering level's text within a given numbering level. This justification is applied relative to the text margin of the parent numbered paragraph in the document.

If omitted, the paragraph shall have left justification relative to the text margin in left-to-right paragraphs, and right justification relative to the text margin in right-to-left paragraphs.

<w:lvl w:ilvl="8" w:tplc="756C1446" w:tentative="1">
  <w:start w:val="1" /> 
  <w:nfc w:val="23" /> 
  <w:lvlText w:val="•" /> 
  <w:lvlJc w:val="left" /></w:lvl>

In this numbering level, the given numbering symbol will be left justified with respect to the text margin, therefore the numbering will extend left from the text margin towards the text (assuming a left-to-right paragraph). ]

A numbering level's text is the numeral, symbol, character, graphic, etc. used to create a numbered paragraph as defined by the <lvlText> element (§2.9.12).

a. Example two

• Example three

The numbering symbol in these three numbered paragraphs are "1", "a", and "•", respectively. ]
