Responsive

To control the text alignment of an element at a specific breakpoint, add a {screen}: prefix to any existing text alignment utility. For example, use md:text-center to apply the text-center utility at only medium screen sizes and above.

Customizing

Responsive and State Variants

By default, only responsive variants are generated for text alignment utilities.

You can control which variants are generated for the text alignment utilities by modifying the textAlign property in the modules section of your Tailwind config file.

For example, this config will also generate hover and focus variants:

{
// ...
modules: {
    // ...
-   textAlign: ['responsive'],
+   textAlign: ['responsive', 'hover', 'focus', 'active', 'group-hover'],
}
}

Disabling

If you don't plan to use the text alignment utilities in your project, you can disable them entirely by setting the textAlign property to false in the modules section of your config file:

{
// ...
modules: {
    // ...
-   textAlign: ['responsive'],
+   textAlign: false,
}
}
