Ok, here is my very simple visualization (+ sign is used to mark default tab
blabla: text1 after tab stop
blablabla: text2 after tab stop
Could this be solved with tables/leaders?
Let say if default tab step is 0.5 inch, then text1 starts here at position
of 1inch and text2 at 1.5inch in this sample, cause label 'blablabla:' ends
right after 1inch position, so another nearest one of 1.5inch is taken.
