hi eneen

try it with a right hand tab stop at the end of the line! (you may set it in the paragraph style, but only use it for the last lineā€¦)

Hi,

I got the same issue using Scribus 1.5.2 on Win10 after double-clicking on the Scribus main window "top-bar".

For the attention of French people who may find that post, you have to use ALT+SPACE + "N" (from Agrandir).

Thanks for the trick, as the Win10 taskbar doesn't offer these options anymore, I was a bit lost too...

As for the space between the text and the symbol, that really depends on exactly what you want but an "en space" or "em space" is usually fine - "Insert -> Spaces & Breaks -> Em (or En) Space". You shouldn't normally need anything more than that - the quoted article describes it well.

Take a look @ attachment. What I'm after is to move dot to the right without moving text. Best of all would be space that extends without need to turn on both side justification.

As usual GerryP is a great source. I did not know about that one.

Liberation Sans does have a square symbol, along with many other symbols.

To get the square:
* double-click the text and place the cursor where you want the square to be inserted;
* choose menu "Insert -> Glyph";
* press the "Show/Hide Enhanced Palette" button (looks like a table);
* in the "Character Class" drop-down (top-right) choose "Geometric Shapes";
* double-click the square glyph;
* press the Insert button;
* close the "Enhanced Character Palette" dialog;
* close the "Character Palette" dialog.

For other symbols just choose a different character class and double-click on the symbol you need.

As for the space between the text and the symbol, that really depends on exactly what you want but an "en space" or "em space" is usually fine - "Insert -> Spaces & Breaks -> Em (or En) Space". You shouldn't normally need anything more than that - the quoted article describes it well.

Try J Garamond - the regular face - for the U220E character.  Out of several hundred sets of fonts, that single one has the best rendering of U220E. I should have looked through my fonts and found J Garamond. It is better than Kelvinch for that glyph.

Liberation Sans does not have that glyph but instead displays the "tofu" symbol.

Ok I used Liberation sans special character, but problem is with "special kind of space" that will move symbol to the right keeping text intact.

Finish your paragraph in a font like Kelvinch and use unicode 220e character.

I'd like to add text ending symbol like little square like that red one:
https://www.fonts.com/content/learning/fontology/level-4/fine-typography/end-marks
I want it to be in the same line as main text and align to the right. Is there way to do it like adding some kind of "tab" char between text and symbol and aligning to the right?

why not copy paste the content in a new A4 .sla with 0 margins and one  column / row guide?

for long term jobs, i would go for the pdf manipulation nermander suggests... but if it's the first and last time you're doing that, just copy paste it..
