There are several non-obvious things going on in your example, starting with the construction of those lines — ID does not support text in front of a defined bullet point. I suspect two separate strings and/or styles are at play here.

 

Can you post a similar clip with hidden characters turned on (Ctrl-Alt-I or at the bottom of the Type menu)?

 

And if you don't know, bullets have to be defined as part of a paragraph style. Typing them in is not really a "bullet," and you have little control ove

And if you don't know, bullets have to be defined as part of a paragraph style. Typing them in is not really a "bullet," and you have little control over how they will align and group. What you have there isn't really bullets as much as defined separator dashes.

 

(Unless that's actually fancy numbering, as part of the style — but it's hard to tell what's going on without the hidden chars.)

 

And — is all that just plain text, typed in, or are those foot/end notes or other automatic/generated cross references?

Yes you were so right James. Thank you so much! It was because I had made my own bullet point made. You have saved me so much annoyance, thank you!

You aren't showing non-printable characters, but I suspect that there's a tab after the bullet, and though it's hard to see the /04/ is just enough wider than the other numbers to push the text past the first tab you have set.
