# Align text to the right

Hi, I would like to be able to align some text to the right, like the numbers here:

there I used tabs to manually align but changing font would mean losing the alignment.

I know I can use a table but I prefer the structure and the look in the screenshot.

Maybe the syntax could be something like:

``````Short text [TAB][TAB][TAB] left aligned
Very very long text [TAB]  left aligned
``````

I think this could be also used elsewhere in Logseq UI instead of the current tables.

BTW how does one insert TABs escaping the indenting shortcut? At the moment I copy-paste TABs from a text editor into a Logseq block.

Workaround:
