It took a while to make Tabs work in Affinity Designer. Perhaps it's a better way of doing it, but it's so different to what I am used to. It would be nice to have the option of setting all distances from the left-edge as well as what is the default of setting the distance of the current tab from the previous tab.

I am mocking up an existing client's form so I can edit it as required for documentation purposes. The text needs to be black and the leader needs to be grey. The leader needs to be thinner than Affinity's default tab leader.

How can I modify the line weight and colour of the Tab Stop Leaders?

Is this a Mac or iPad problem? On Windows, tabs do set from the left edge, not from the previous tab. You need to press the + sign in the tab stops panel. When entering a value make sure you key the units used after the number, not just the number. Line weight and colour can be changed after selecting the leader. You can make a text style for the leader.

It was a problem between screen and keyboard at my end. Thanks for your help Mick.

The only thing left for me to figure out is how to create the custom leader text style.
