Justifying text in the compilation

I have just tried to compile my chapters in a way that the text is justified.
I have assigned the sections and I see that I make changes in the correct place, because when I attempt to make the text italicized it has the desired effect after the compile. So I know I'm changing the correct variable. But every time I set the text to be justified, it is aligned to the left instead. It seems the problem is only with this one button.

Any suggestions?

Best regards,

Have you tried one of these two methods:
1) used the "As Is" Section Layout?

2) Changed the section layout formatting to justify the text?

I did not use the "As is" function, because I do want the compiler to edit the text.

I did try use the second option, I changed the section layout to justify the text and in the preview in the compiler it seemed like it worked. However, after the compiler ran, the text was still left-aligned, as if nothing was changed. That is the reason for my question here, because I don't know what I did wrong and all seemed to work, but then it didn't.

Also, thank you for your reply.

You change justification in the same place in compile settings where you change font etc for one of the layouts.

Double-click the layout you choose (the upper image from the previous poster)
