Any way to autofill with a character?

Post by content » Fri Aug 10, 2018 8:40 pm

It's a commonly-seen use ... especially using the dot character (see attached image). But I haven't been able to locate any feature in TextMaker to extend or autofill a character.

Does such a feature exist? (I'm currently using the standard version of 2012)

Thanks in advance for any help.

In TOCs, there is tab between the heading name at the beginning and the page number at the end of the line. Right-click, choose "Tabs..." and adjust "Tab leader" accordingly. This works in TM 2018 just as in TM 2012 (and with all other tabs, too).

Sorry for the delay in getting back to this, but for anyone following, the tab setting below accomplishes the task.

Thanks for the response.
