This is how I want my table of contents to look like: the text aligned after the page number

1.png

the white text has a paragraph style with a set tab and I had to 'indent to here' so that the text would be aligned but everytime I update the table the tab stays but the text loses its alignment and I would have to 'indent to here' again

Is there a way keep the text aligned or automatic 'indent to here' even after updating the table?

Hi zylaverO,

I would not work with "Indent To Here".

Instead work with hanging indents in the applied paragraph styles. Details:

Uwe is right, youre more flexible if you dont have to add/sub these characters for reusing the text (which you kinda already did in the TOC). The only trick to know here is this: indent all and reindent the first line.
