So instead of inserting a normal tab, insert a Right Indent Tab via the contextual menu. The tricky bit is applying a leader to it; as it happens, it uses whatever leader is set for the last real tab stop in the paragraph.

So drag your existing tab way off the the right, replace your tabs with Right Indent Tabs, and you'll have what you want.

So it does basically do the same thing, function the same way as Option-Tab in QX? Cool!
