Illustrator 24.2 tab stops not working with blank text lines
Tab stops do not function correctly when the text line has no text. We commonly use this for creating underlines. Attached examples show a text field with tab stops. The text lines with characters use the tab stops correctly (spaces do not count). Any text lines without characters cause the tab stops to be one space wide.

Still having the same problem with version 24.3
Kind of surprised there are no other reports of this. Is there another way to setup tab stops? I can only get a tab stop to function if there is a character in front of the tab.
