Empty gaps between tabs with dotted lines as filler

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,

For a client, I have to create a form for minutes of a meeting.

Per line, I have five tabs overall. At the beginning of the tab is a word, then followed by dotted lines for handwriting.

This looks a bit like this:

Word.......... Word.......... Word.......... Word.......... Word..........

But for many lines, there are very varying exceptions with less than five words but with longer dotted lines, for example like this:

Word.......... Word.......... Word..............................

Unfortunately, if two tabs meet each other with only dotted lines as filler, I get ugly empty gaps. Please, have a look at this screenshot:


I know, I could avoid these gaps by removing the redundant tabs and extending the first tab. But there are so many exceptions per line (different amount of words and widths of dotted lines from one word to another) that it means, firstly I have to do alot of rework and secondly, if the client wishes for changes (what happens every few years), it's not easy to add or remove words, because I have to adjust the tab distances for every line.

Is there a better way, to remove these gaps, without altering the tab lengths?
