That is an interesting one. We are hoping to have a bit of a sprint in
July or August to get a new release out, we need a very similar feature for
paragraphs in tables of contents, where there is often a line of dots
running across to the numbers. We will attempt to add this in the trunk as
soon as we get a quiet day - hopefully within the next couple of weeks.
Does anyone have any thoughts on options or variations? TOCs usually use
dots and this is hyphens, so I guess the "padding character" and spacing
might need to be adjustable.
