View Full Version : Leader characters on center aligned text

Oct 18, 2007, 01:34 PM
Hi does anyone know how or if it is possible to use leader characters on
center aligned text.

I'm helping a customer with her wedding program and I notice she used
multiple periods instead of proper leader characters.

For example she listed the songs that will be played at the wedding.

Wedding March.....Franz Schubert

But the above is center-aligned

I want to put in leader characters between the song and the composer, but
when I do it in InDesign, it makes a really long leader character.

I guess it's because the text is center aligned.

Is there a way to get around this?

Right now I'm using ellipses, but that seems like cheating.

Thanks for any ideas.

Create a new text box and center the box. The text can then be left aligned within the box. You should be setting tabs.
