How to line up Leader lines/dots

Post by PrintingServices » 15 Mar 2017, 11:13

Hi there

I have to produce a lot of 'Menu' style artworks, with a short line of text followed by a Tabbed leader line, then a price.
Previously, in Quark 8, I used to type the text (a 'Product description'), then insert a R/L Tab with an underscore as a Leader line, then another Tab (either R/L or R/R) on which a 'price' would align. This gave me a nice, neat end to the Leader line, with them all lining up.

However, I am trying to do the same in Quark 2016, and the Leader lines just will not line up!

I have attached a screen grab to illustrate. I have shown the position of the Tabs, and followed this position down with a pink line so that you can see where the Leaders should line up. You will see that none of the right-hand ends of the Leader lines and dots align!

Is there any way for me to get the Leader lines to line up? Am I missing something terribly simple?

Any help or suggestions welcome!

Thanks!

No, and you're not missing anything or doing anything wrong. It's an acknowledged bug.

Hi PrintingServices,

Tab leaders are not aligned from right in case of Left indented tabs. It is a defect in the latest update for QuarkXPress 2016- version 12.2.1.

Until a new update with the fix for the defect is available, you can uninstall the current version update and install the previous version update for QuarkXPress 2016 i.e. 12.2. Tab leaders alignment works fine in version 12.2
