On pc Debian x86-64 with master sources updated today, I could reproduce this.

Here's a codepointer:

case SDRTEXTHORZADJUST_BLOCK : break;   // don't know
case SDRTEXTHORZADJUST_LEFT : break;    // already left aligned -> nothing to do
Comment 12 Regina Henschel 2021-10-07 23:49:07 UTC
The current rendering is wrong, the text should be centered.

The option "Word justify" is currently bound to the setting "option middle/center with checked 'Full width'" in the 'Text Attributes' dialog. That means, that it specifies an anchor for the text block. [The options 'Left align', 'Right align' and 'Center' are too bound the Anchor setting in the 'Text Attributes' dialog.]

The setting 'Full width' means, that the reference for the alignment of paragraphs in the text block of a custom shape is the edge of the text area of the custom shape. 'Full width disabled' means, that the reference is the box of the longest paragraph. But that makes no sense for Fontwork. The paragraphs in the text of a Fontwork cannot have different alignments and the text area is ignored for Fontwork.

This bounding to the "Text Attributes" dialog exists already in OOo2.4.3. and also the error, that the text becomes left aligned.

The expected behavior of "justify" cannot be achieved with binding to anchor "middle/center with 'full width' checked". So either the option should be removed or a new implementation is needed.
