Hi Thomas,

It would help to know how you set this up.
I tried to set up something similar with the following method:

I created a Paragraph Style, then set a tab to represent the column of
page numbers. This should be a Right tab, and I made the fill character
a dot.

I then applied this to the text frame. There was some slight variation
in the right-hand side of the page numbers, but not as severe as in your
example. You might try changing the font and see if that makes a difference.
