Does anyone know if there is a way that leader lines can be automatically justified in an auto-generated TOC, LOF, LOT, etc?  I'd like for them to simply line up against the right margin but they will not. Please see below.

You need to open the paragraph designer for each of these tags and set a right-align tab with a dot leader. If you insert the dot leaders manually, you are going to run into issues with lines wrapping to the next line.

Yes, DJTOregon. You will need to edit the TOC, LOF, LOT, etc reference pages and replace the default space with a tab for those paragraphs. Then set a right-align tab at the right margin.

Hi DJTOregon:

I'm following up to see if this worked for you, or if you have any additional questions.

Sorry. I was out of town with no access to Internet. It still doesn't work. Here is what I have. I need everything to be justified against the right margin. Right now it looks like this. I have also attached my reference page that corresponds to this.

Or, if what you did was set a Left-aligned tab, you can change it to a Right-aligned one and click continue.
