Attached is a very simple example of the famous jittering right justified text. I have tried both right and right-align and they give the same result (with BDF or TTF fonts). I still maintain that this is a calculation problem with the width of the numeral "1", which in all fonts I have ever worked with, is the same width and alignment as all other 9 digits.

Besides this, I am curious about the right-align, left-align, and center-align settings. What is the expecte result of using these settings? Description within help system doesn't seem very complete.

When installing Qlarity Foundry, there is a directory created called "bdf fonts\fixed width". In this directory are fonts where the width of each character is fixed to the same size. The fonts I've tested so far that are "fixed width" alleviate the jitter that you are seeing.
