I can't for the life of me work out how to have a solid keyline as a separator, or tabbed leader in a table of contents. (It's worth noting at this stage, I'm not actually using the 'Table Of Contents' option for this particular exercise.)
After some research, older tutorials and threads have advised using an em dash. But I'm not getting the desired results. Strikethrough kinda works, but you can't control the weight of the keyline.
En dash result:

Any enlightenment gratefully received. I might even send you a Fry's Turkish Delight.
Playing with this, but as start, you can control the weight of the strikethrough—Alt/Opt click on the strikethrough button on the control panel.
Or use an underline character as the leader, and then create a character style to give it a baseline shift? You can also customize the underline weight.
Create a custom character style with an underline, and apply this to the tab character. This will allow you control over the weight and position of the underline.
Good option, thank you.
Ok, so here's how to pull it all together:
...but what about Rabbits?
Just thought I'd add an alternative solution which doesn't rely on underlines or use the TOC function. You can use Grep Styles to style just the Tab character using \t in the grep box, and then adding a character style. The \t selects any tab character in your paragraph, so you can extend this with other GREP modifiers if you wanted for instance to style only the second tab in a line. The useful GREP stuff is mostly actually RegEx so see BBPrT.png (763×1037) (imgur.com)
