MS PPT and left right justification

I am using Powerpoint 2013.  I like it, I just came to a point I do not understand

I have a text box that looks something like this

                  http://first.com   http://second.com

Open in new window

What I am trying to do is left justify the first.com, and right justify the second.com on the same line, so I looks something like this:

http://first.com                                                                   http://second.com

Open in new window

So I select second.com and hit the right justify button, but it right justifies the entire like, not just the part I selected (second.com).  And if I then select the first.com only, and left justify that, it will also left justify the entire line, not just the part of the line selected.

Is there any way to left justify part of a line?

You would have to use a right-aligned tab and insert a tab space between the two bits of text.

How do I use a right aligned tab.
I can't tell you how to do it in code.

In the PPT interface, you can do it a couple of ways. Easiest is to go to the View tab and click Rulers to turn on the ruler.

Click inside the textbox with the text. Then in the tabs to the the left of the ruler, click until you see the right-aligned tab option. Click on the ruler to place the tab at the far right of the textbox. tab types and ruler

Then place your cursor between the two bits of text and press TAB on your keyboard.
