  1. On the Home tab, in the Paragraph group, click the Paragraph dialog box launcher, and then click Tabs.

  2. In the Tab stop position box, enter the position (measurement) on the ruler where you want to set the tab stop.

  3. Under Alignment, choose Left, Center, Right, Decimal, or Bar.

  4. Under Leader, choose 1 None, 2 dots, 3 dashes, or 4 underline to set—in the case of options 2, 3, and 4—a series of characters that links, for example, a section title with a page number.

  5. Click Set > OK
