justifying phone numbers on a business card

I know there is a way to do this, I have just fogotten because it doesn't come up often enough.  

 

The third number 951-1057 is different in length from the previous two because of the kerning(?) of the "1" character.  From the address line to the url line it is all one text box.  Isn't there a way to make the numbers - specifically the seven digits without area code(s) - the same length automatically?

 

I would rather not set different tracking for each line that doesn't line up by hand

 

Any help is appreciated!

 

Thanks

Switch the opentype setting from default figure style to tabular lining – assuming your font has tabular lining included. I am using Work Sans in the example below, an open source font by Wei Huang (Font on Github).

1. Numbers with default figure style = not aligned

3. Numbers are aligned – voilà:

I knew there was a way, thank you!

 

Unfortunately, it doesn't work with Montserrat - I tried with Work Sans and easily duplicated your results, vercy clearlyi explained

 

Hopefully it helps someone else

 

Again, I appreciate your help!
