Tab Leaders in QuarkXPress

Tab leaders–the lines of filler char­ac­ters in print­ed lists and ta­bles of con­tents that con­nect the aligned con­tent on one side to the aligned con­tent on the other–are eas­i­ly ob­tain­able in QuarkXPress.

After set­ting up and for­mat­ting the list, bring up the Tabs pane of the Paragraph Attributes di­a­log box (Mac: CMD-SHIFT-T, Win: CTRL-SHIFT-T, or Menu: Style>Tabs”¦). Select the tab you want to im­ple­ment and en­ter the leader char­ac­ter in the “Fill Character” box.

If the tab lead­ers seem too dense, en­ter a sin­gle space af­ter your fill char­ac­ter. QuarkXPress al­lows up to two char­ac­ters in the “Fill Character” box.
