In cut2d can text be created that is justified so the text is aligned on left and right?

No, but an easy workaround is to type the text in you favorite word processor using Justify and save the results as a PDF. You can them import the PDF file using File/Import/Import Vectors

I'm not sure if Cut2D has the same editing tools as Aspire, but in Aspire, you can draw a line or rectangle and by using the Align Objects Icons, you can justify objects that way.

Actually Mr. Newcomb's solution worked well for my needs. I did the document on Open Office using justify and then saved it as a pdf. Came out perfect. The only thing that would be better would be if Open Office had a single line font. The lettering is small so single line text would be much better.

These fonts will work in Open Office - http://www.mrrace.com/CamBam_Fonts/ - you might need to do a little bit of editing in Cut2D when you import the PDF as these types of font have overlapping lines to create the single line effect.

Thank you Adrian, that is EXACTLY what I needed. The fonts work perfectly with Open Office and cut2d.
