Hello 🙂  I'm new to Illustrator and have a little problem. Any help is greatly appreciated! 

Screen Shot 2021-01-30 at 10.10.07 PM.png

I tried to align them (see above) to the right in the paragraph panel, but there's always a misalignment. For some reason, the baselines/tiny blue lines marking the bottom aren't aligned to the right. I'm not too familiar with all the tools in Illustrator (I'm using CC 2021). Is there a way to align this without expanding the text? 

 

Cheers,

Zoe

You can use the Create Outline Command  Ctrl+Shift+O to edit it easily.Or to go professionally, you can use the Touch Type Tool to edit letters separately and manually:

On the assumption that Monika is correct, I would guess that you have a space after the 1. Removing the space will properly align the 2 and bring the baseline fully to the right. If you actually want the 1 to right-align with the M, go to the Align panel flyout menu, choose Align to Glyph Bounds > Point Type, then choose Horizontal Align Right. If the hidden character turns out to be the problem, please mark Monika's answer as correct.   Peter

Can you try and turn on the Hidden characters in the Type menu? This will show you if there's some character in the line.

Also: it will help us to see the complete picture: the complete text object with all formatting in the panels.
