[scribus] Problem with aligning the page numbers in a column...

Good news,

my guess is that you have problems with the right-align-bug of Scribus.

It has to do with certain fonts, which have encoded the "CR" aka U+000D
while most fonts have "nothing" at this position. Both options are
legal, but Scribus is "doing something special" when right-aligning (by
tab or other function) text which contains C+000D.

My guess is that you are using Gentium but I do not see what version of
course. This is the good news: Gentium is made available by SIL and I
told SIL about this problem a few years ago. They have agreed to remove
their "glyph" at U+0001 for all future releases.

I personally did a test just now (like Greg) and it works just fine for
me, using Scribus 1.5.4 and Gentium basic 1.102 from 2013. I mean all
page numbers perfectly align, I tried one-digit up to four digit
page-numbers and long and short "chapter titles".

Every time I attach something, this mail-server is yelling at me. So
please believe me or let me know how to send you a screen-shot.

So all you might need is a fresh download of the font or a more recent
Scribus or to look at Greg's notes about setting up a style with the tab
