    It looks clean and simple, it depends on the client you're aiming to, if it is a "regular" client I'd think it's ok; but if you plan sending this to a creative agency or such I would aim for...

    okay, thanks for now, to answer shorthand:

    Yes, I create things like this one in vectors, just used png for export. I like png somehow that it keeps the transparency if the purpose needed....

  • Table of Contents Dots?

    I was wondering if someone could name this typographic element. It appears usually in Table of Contents where there are dots that lead from the section title to the page number. It is similar to a Right Indent Space (InDesign) with periods to fill in the space. Can anyone tell me what these are called and if possible, how to do them in InDesign? Thanks in advance.

    you can do it by typing a period in the "leader" box of the tab palette

      They are called... dots!

      I know in Quark it is under Formats / Page Attributes and there is a fill in the blank section called Fill Characters You just type in your "." or what ever you choose to make it (it can be numbers, spaces, under scores). Then when you hit tab and it tabs over to your tab mark it fills it with that fill character.

      Here's a screen cap fomr the document I had open that has them.


      That is in Quark. But I am sure InDesign is similar...

        Would you have any idea why I would not find dots when I add a period into the Right-Justified Tab arrow's leader box?

            That worked perfectly. Good to know they are called Leaders. Thanks for the help.

                  Leader dots are handy indeed. You don't want to know how I did pages and pages of contents pages before I found the option under tabs. Oh, I bet you can guess how!

                    Join the club, Buda! But bear in mind this is a secret club which we tell no one we're in.....you know, because we wouldn't want them to join... Right?
