Utilities

Bootstrap includes dozens of utilities—classes with a single purpose to reduce the frequency of highly repetitive declarations.

Typography

The following utilities can be used to add additional styles to texts.

Text alignment

Easily realign text to components with text alignment classes.

Ambitioni dedisse scripsisse iudicaretur. Cras mattis iudicium purus sit amet fermentum. Donec sed odio operae, eu vulputate felis rhoncus. Praeterea iter est quasdam res quas ex communi. At nos hinc posthac, sitientis piros Afros. Petierunt uti sibi concilium totius Galliae in diem certam indicere. Cras mattis iudicium purus sit amet fermentum.

<p class="text-justify">Ambitioni dedisse scripsisse iudicaretur. Cras mattis iudicium purus sit amet fermentum. Donec sed odio operae, eu vulputate felis rhoncus. Praeterea iter est quasdam res quas ex communi. At nos hinc posthac, sitientis piros Afros. Petierunt uti sibi concilium totius Galliae in diem certam indicere. Cras mattis iudicium purus sit amet fermentum.</p>
Curabitur blandit tempus ardua ridiculus sed magna.
<div class="card">
  <div class="card-block text-nowrap">
    Curabitur blandit tempus ardua ridiculus sed magna.
  </div>
</div>

For left, right, and center alignment, responsive classes are available that use the same viewport width breakpoints as the grid system.

Left aligned text on all viewport sizes.

Center aligned text on all viewport sizes.

Right aligned text on all viewport sizes.

Left aligned text on viewports sized SM (small) or wider.

Left aligned text on viewports sized MD (medium) or wider.

Left aligned text on viewports sized LG (large) or wider.

Left aligned text on viewports sized XL (extra-large) or wider.

<p class="text-left">Left aligned text on all viewport sizes.</p>
<p class="text-center">Center aligned text on all viewport sizes.</p>
<p class="text-right">Right aligned text on all viewport sizes.</p>

<p class="text-sm-left">Left aligned text on viewports sized SM (small) or wider.</p>
<p class="text-md-left">Left aligned text on viewports sized MD (medium) or wider.</p>
<p class="text-lg-left">Left aligned text on viewports sized LG (large) or wider.</p>
<p class="text-xl-left">Left aligned text on viewports sized XL (extra-large) or wider.</p>

Text transform

Transform text in components with text capitalization classes.

Lowercased text.

Uppercased text.

CapiTaliZed text.

<p class="text-lowercase">Lowercased text.</p>
<p class="text-uppercase">Uppercased text.</p>
<p class="text-capitalize">CapiTaliZed text.</p>

Note how text-capitalize only changes the first letter of each word, leaving the case of any other letters unaffected.

Font weight and italics

Quickly change the weight (boldness) of text or italicize text.

Bold text.

Normal weight text.

Italic text.

<p class="font-weight-bold">Bold text.</p>
<p class="font-weight-normal">Normal weight text.</p>
<p class="font-italic">Italic text.</p>
