i am using


as a template. how can i align the page numbers in the table of contents? as i am not familiar with the commands in FrontBackMatter/Contents i do not know how to insert some horizontal fill :S

is there some typographical beauty i fail to appreciate when numbers do not appear in a straight line?

    Welcome to TeX.SX! As Bringhurst would say, you don't need to sum up page numbers, do you? So they don't need to be aligned. – egreg Mar 26 '16 at 13:42

The default setting of page numbers in the table of contents is a precise choice of the ClassicThesis style, based on Bringhurst's book “The Elements of Typographic Style”.

The idea is that one doesn't need to sum up page numbers, so they don't need to be aligned.

You can get right aligned page numbers by passing the dottedtoc option to classicthesis:

\usepackage[dottedtoc,...<other options>...]{classicthesis}

If I compile the manual of ArsClassica with this change, I get
