Is it possible to allign a list of sporting fixtures so the 'v' lines up from line to line.
red v blue
blue v green
rellow v red
orange v blue
If I just centre allign it obviously the 'v' won't line up like I want it, and I can fudge it with tabs or spaces but I thought I'd check here as there might be a much better way.
Thanks in advance,
Posting an image of a sketch of what you're tryiing to do would be much better than words. Not at all clear what you're talking about, sorry.
Some steps, but try this:
Change spacevspace to tabvtab
Convert text to table, then size and align your table columns and remove all table strokes.
I was totally thrown by the term "sporting fixtures." At least in my part of the US, I've never heard that term before. I had to look it up.
You can also try: tab color1 tab V tab color2, and set the tabs as equally spaced right aligned, center aligned, left aligned. The tab positions can be saved in a Paragraph Style:
Use the "align on" tab and specify to align on the v.
Then you'll only need one tab for each line and they will all adjust together. (Sorry, picture didn't upload with previous reply)
This solution will not work if the first color has the letter "v". For example, "violet".
I think the best solution is the three tabs (right, center, left), given by Rob Day.
