flexbox-textalign

Here, we will use flex property to align text vertically and horizontally without any collapse. The flex property is basically added to the css standards for space distribution and element alignment. It is very easy to write, responsive and mobile friendly. The flex property is used to position the child elements within the main container. So the margin doesn’t collapse with the content margins. 

In the below example, we will use the flex property to set the content to vertical and horizontal alignment. By setting the following three properties to the text can be aligned vertically/horizontally. This example also shows how to position the three different directions (center, left and right) of the elements.

  1. align-items
  2. justify-content
  3. Flex-direction
