Sorry for what may be a simple answer but I'm stumped. I have created a numbered list through a style but for some reason the tab space after the some of the numbers is larger than it should be? Attached a screenshot to show what I mean. If you look at 8/9 numbered items they are fine as is 11 but 10, 12 and 13 all have a larger tab after them. Definitely all the same style as I have reset it a number of times to make sure but still stumped. There are multiple examples of this through the document and always starts with a larger tab space at number 10.

 

Any ideas please? TIA

I can't see your attached screenshot, but I guessing the problem is that when you switch to two digit numbers, the combined width of the characters exceedes the size of the tab space. When that happens, the tab goes to the next available stop, resulting in a bigger space. The reason it doesn't happen with 11 is because the proportional width of the characters: two "1"s are not wide enough to cause the problem.
If you increase the size of the tab stop (and the corresponding first line indent), that should solve the problem.
