I have added a paragraph style that has numbering in it. I was wondering how I make the numbers come after the text? I have tried aligning the number to the right but that doesn't work.

  • I personally, for such things (e.g. TOC) did second text frame for numbers. At other have you can do a table with two columns - the second column for numbers.

    Did you try a right-align tab with a leader character? May 28 '14 at 9:57
  • @LaurenIpsum how would you do that?

  • Instructions on how to set tabs in InDesign are easily found under the Help menu and on the web. help.adobe.com/en_US/indesign/cs/using/… May 29 '14 at 9:50

Best work-around:

  • remove the numbering from the paragraph
  • add a last line indent to the paragraph style which will clear for the numbers
  • add a new paragraph style which is right-aligned and automatically numbers and is set to keep w/ the previous paragraph and has zero-leading
  • add such additional paragraphs using that paragraph style where you want the numbering.
