I have a bunch of sentences like this

blue: is a good color
orgishblue: is alright man but I don't know


I want to make them look like
Code:

blue:                         is a good color
orangishblue:                 is alright man but I don't know


so the lines after the colon are at about the same reading level
anyone know how to make them all do that?

When I typed it in, it delete my empty spaces. but what I want it to do is by the : I want it to indent so I can read them all well.

so the message about blue and the message about orangish are at the same level of indentation

Select the sentences then click on the horizontal ruler to set a tab where you want "is" to start.

Do a find and replace:
Search = :
Replace = :\t
Under More Options check Regular Expressions.
