1. Select the text you want to add dot leaders to
2. Under the ‘Home’ tab – click the small arrow or dialog box launcher in Paragraph Group (see the diagram below for details)
3. The ‘Paragraph’ dialog box will appear on your screen

The ‘Tab’ dialog box will appear on your screen
Change the ‘Tab’ stop settings here to the same the Tab Stop position on the ruler. Because my Tab stop on the ruler is set at 3”, the ‘Tab’ stop settings I have to include here would also be 3”.
Choose the leader dot option you want – I chose option 2. See the Diagram below.
Click the ‘OK’ button
Word adds Leader dots to my selected text as seen in my diagram below.
