Text Justification Only Thru Conversion?

Is there anyway other than thru conversion to justify text throughout a book?

I have tried various options in Modify epub that did not work.

Sigil

find the selector(s) that controls the paragraphs . Add or change the CSS:
Code:
'text-align: justify;

I've just had this same issue as (being otherwise) I like Left aligned, not Justified text. Opening each of my many hundreds of books in Sigil to change the CSS became so tedious I ended up re-converting the lot. I actually came in today to see if the re-conversion issues I've read about with Calibre still exist. To date (knock wood) I haven't had any problems - or none that I've noticed at a glance, anyway - but I hang onto the originals in case. However, having many hundreds of original epubs cluttering up my hard drive isn't very "tidy"! Any comment on the pitfalls of re-converting?

There are always going to be pitfalls to ePub > ePub and it is never recommended to do so in most cases. Using Tweak eBook would do it. Just load the CSS into a text editor and change justify to left.
