Thank you for the report, this has been added as
As I translate the chapter, I've found some other small inaccuracies or
typos, already reported in the tracker.
Now I've found something which seems wrong, but it's also likely that
I'm missing something so I ask here.
This property can be used to align the object to the left, to the right,
or to center it with respect to the parent object’s reference point. It
may be used with all objects which support the self-alignment-interface.
In general these are objects that contain text. The values are LEFT,
RIGHT or CENTER. Alternatively, a numerical value between -1 and +1 may
be specified, where -1 is left-aligned, +1 is right-aligned, and numbers
in between move the text progressively from left-aligned to
right-aligned. Numerical values greater than 1 may be specified to move
the text even further to the left, or less than -1 to move the text even
further to the right. A change of 1 in the value corresponds to a
movement of half the text’s length."
There's an inconsistency, as it's first stated that -1 causes the text
to be left-aligned, then that values less than -1 moves the text even
further to the right.
I think that the latter is right and we should rephrase a sentence this way:
"where -1 is right-aligned, +1 is left-aligned, and numbers in between
move the text progressively from right-aligned to left-aligned. "
I'm right or wrong?
