Dot-leadered tabs are great for tables of contents or telephone directories. Letís assume you will be creating the following document:
Joe Henry 555-1234
Jacob Johnson 555-2238
Kim Cummins 555-2634
Follow these steps to create the dot-leadered tab you see in the document above:
Point to the tab-type indicator & click until you have selected a right tab. If you point to the tab-type indicator, you will get a tooltip indicating which type of tab is currently chosen
Point to 5.5 on the ruler and click to set a right tab.
Point to the right tab setting at 5.5 and double-click with the right mouse button (a double right-click). This accesses the Tabs dialog box.
If you have more than one tab setting, you would need to click on the tab stop for which you wish to add a dot-leader.
Choose the type of leader tab (2 for dots, 3 for dashes, or 4 for underlines.)
Click the OK button.
Line-leadered tabs are great for creating lines beginning and ending at a exact location. See the example below.
Caution: although these lines look great, you canít type information on them. If you need a line you can type on, use a table (see Secret #4).
