Label alignment left or right?

Hallo,

I have a problem at the definition of the layout guideline of our software
company (software is a desktop application and not a web forms). In many
discussions it is said that the right alignment is a good alternative to
vertical positioning of labels. But in some cases left-alignment labels are
better structured (if I use multiple columns). It is said likewise that the
consistence in the complete application is very important.

My question: Can I use a mixture of both in the applictation layout?

And if not, what is the best standard

Thanx in advance

Label left or right align

Basic stuff I know but...

Putting political persuasion aside, does anyone have an opinion on aligning
form field labels left or right to the form field.

I generally prefer to right align so that they remain in close proximity to
the device they are describing. Left aligning (which does have it's pro's in
defining a bounding area) can cause issues with marrying the label to the
device unless using a background colour to suggest the relationship.

Kind regards

KN
