#' Converting Numeric Values into Characters with the Same Digits
#'
#' This simple function is to facilitate something like 
#' decimal horizontal adjustment 
#' which demands each value has the 
#' same digits after the decimal point.
#' 
#' @param x a vector of numeric values.
#' @param digits digits which is to be passed 
#' to \code{round}. It should not be smaller than 0.
#' @param na how to show NAs. The default is 
#' to show " NA", however, you can change it 
#' to "NA" or simply \code{NA}.
#'
#' @export
#' @examples
#' v=c(3, 3.1, 3.456, 3.452, 3.77, NA, 0, 10.56332)
#' res=round_text(v, 2, na=NA)
