Console output

Is it possible to align output text to the console?


I'm printing a UI to the console which gives users the ability to select an option



System.out.printf("Welcome to the system%n");

System.out.printf("Please select an select an option%n");

System.out.printf("1 - Login with username and password%n");

System.out.printf("2 - Create an account%n");

System.out.printf("3 - Options%n");

System.out.printf("4 - Exit%n");


I was wondering if I can format this text to be aligned to a certain side. Or columns if not, but I prefer alignment. Also is there a more efficient way to write a large paragraph to be output(like above)?

Thank you!
