Hi,

I have a word doc where i want the prices on a menu to be displayed to the right of the text, but all in the same line, so you could put a ruler next to the lines once printed

At the moment i have just tabbed accross the numbers, can anyone advise?

Thanks

An invisible table might be the best way to space them out.

You need to use tabs. Replace the spaces used to separate the text from the prices with tab characters (tab key). Select the paragraphs in question and click on the horizontal ruler at about the 17 cm mark, This should place a left-aligned tab stop in the selected paragraphs,

You can drag the tab stop (looking like an upper-case L) on the ruler to left or right.

Yup, the same here.

Technically, you can use right-aligned tabs for this, but I think that's more complicated than you'd like.

The modified document attached.

HTH,
