Hello, I am working on a project that includes guest names and corresponding table number, I am having trouble aligning my text within the boxes, I am using the "space" character to align the numbers before moving to the next line and noticed that some of these numbers from the line above (or below) are not properly aligned, although all text fit within the box. For example the two guests at table 7, I have aligned the #7 for L. Holmes to the furthest it will go within the box using the "space" key and yet still doesn't align with R. Holmes below it. I highlighted the text and I see there is some spacing there following some of the numbers, but there is no room within "the box" to adjust without creating a new line. How do I fix this? I have included a screenshot.

To expand on what Manal said: Set the Right-Justified tab where you want the numbers to align on the right. Type a name, press the tab key, type the number. Press return, and continue. Peter Hi, Jacob.

Ruby,

 

How about your just using the space as far as it goes in the individual lines, and then selecting all lines and applying Justify All Lines in the Paragraph panel?
