    Tabs not working as expected with centred text

    AdrianLThompson Level 1



      I'm trying to make a contents page in Indesign but having trouble with aligning the text correctly.


      I want the page titles to be centered but when I select the paragraph style onto centered the text moves away from the Tab stop keeping it in the right place - - the result of this is each page title in the column is in a slightly different place.  If I leave the paragraph style on left align the page title stays by the tab stop where I expect it to but I don't like how it looks!



      Note in the examples below how in the centered example the S has moved over to the right away from the Tab stop.



      Any suggestions?


      Many thanks,
