search books with a certain text alignment

hi,

I have some older epubs with no or left text alignment which I would like to bulk convert to justified alignment. is there a way to find all books which are not text aligned "justified"?

The Quality Check plugin has an option to check for epub without a CSS file containing text-align:justify.

At first I would say use the Quality Check PI
BUT

There are logical issues

Usually the CSS sets the alignment. But it can be done a million different ways that all render what you want.

Then there is the other half... The document.
What is the CSS style(s) that affects the main body of text, but not Headings, footnotes...

I adjust many of my books to fit my preferences (and my device limits). Most take less than 5 minutes to accomplish with Sigil.

I look at the Chapter (placing the cursor of a paragraph that needs a tweak) , switch to Codeview. Place the cursor on the 'Style' and right click Goto Link or Style. Review and adjust, being careful that what I did does not also affect Headers and other parts because of the way they were coded (I sometimes recode headers to get around this code)

I have pre-made clips of CSS code ready to paste and saved searches to speed up many of these tweaks.

a quick test on some of the books showed the plugin to work perfectly
