Hi

Is it possible to make numbers the same width in Indesign?

I have a TOC where I would like the numbers to have the same width, in the example 11 and 21 does not look good.

Pro Fonts have in OpenType several number types. Choose one tabular font type.

If the choosen font does not include those, choose another font, create a character style with tabualr numbers and chosse that in the toc setup for page number.

Most fonts are designed the way you want it, as far as I know. It's quite unusual for "1" to be a narrow character. So maybe try some other fonts.

In your font choose Tabular Lining or Tabular Oldstyle - those numbers have all the same width.
