1. Option 1. If the leader were made by hand, and you must make sure that they were put down automatically. To do this, first select the text and change the point to gaps: edit —>Find/Replace—>a point on a space, and then replace 3 spaces at 2, and after the number of replacements is reduced to 0, replace 2 spaces for Tab (denoted as ^t -the sign ^ is typed as a 6 on the English layout).

2. Now select the text and go to Text menu—>Tabs. In the window of the leader extension that appears put a point, select the arrow indicating the position of the right text margin and will move to adjust the line leader to the right arrow◄, meaning the box to the right, aligning with her.
