Hi, I have faced a serious challenge which I've been struggling with for some time. I couldn't find a solution to my use-case and after hours of searching on Google I couldn't find anything useful in my case. 

I have two strings which are just a series of a single character (digit) in line, I would like to Append them to a StringBuilder but the second string to the next column instead of continuing alongside the same line as the previous string.

For example, let's say I have these two strings:


Open in new window

And this one also


Open in new window

I would like them to be aside each other instead of the same line, like this:

7  7
8  7
9  7
10 7
11 7

Open in new window

How can I accomplish this with StringBuilder? I am aware of the String helper method PadRight() but it just doesn't work well with my current design. If there's another approach I'd like to hear about it, thanks.
