Hello, A big thanks to everyone who responded. The solutions you provided where dead-on. Setting up a right-aligned tab stop to get the decimal points to line up, then setting up a left-aligned tab stop to set spacing between the decimal point and the text that followed was exactly what I was looking for. I reduced the number of paragraph tags I needed from three to one!
For anyone else that might be looking for a solution like this, here's what I ended up with (in a nutshell): In Paragraph Designer, on the Basic Sheet: *Tab Stops*: ----------- .5 R (this corresponds to the first tab on the Numbering sheet) .6 L (this corresponds to the second tab on the Numbering sheet) *Under Indents: *-------------- First = 0 Left = .6 (this should match the Left tab stop setting so that all lines in the paragraph line up with the first line of the paragraph) On the Numbering Sheet: S:\t<n+>.\t Thanks, Andy On 5/30/06, Andy Kelsall <andy.kelsall at gmail.com> wrote: > Hello, > > I'm writing a step procedure that involves over 10 steps.
