To arrange info in a tabular look, it is common to use tab-stops. Inside the Print Composer, when adding a label it is possible to layout the text with tabs (In Item Properties / Label )

Nevertheless, this layout is not reflected inside the actual label.

I want to add some information like:

I want the values to be in the same horizontal offset, but they are not aligned.

Is this already possible (maybe with another tool than label)?

If not:
- Different fonts and their spacings could be a problem. So maybe it would be necessary to add a ruler to control tab-stops to the label text field?

- With an additional table tool this could be achieved as well
