'Fixed width' option for paragraph rules and styles
There's a long history in the forums for this request; Fixed width and alignment for paragraph rules.
See attached; Need a dropdown option to select 'Fixed width' and then length and alignment options.
Also need this carried over to paragraph styles.

This is a clever idea. Here is one workaround until Adobe adds this feature: https://indesignsecrets.com/topic/line-underneath-text/#post-122738
I missed this function too, would be nice to have it.

Matt, just use here a stroke style! So simplistic! ;-)
Yes please, I was just looking to see if this was possible as I don't want the rules to all be different sizes.

Agreed; oftentimes I'm working with brands which require a short line of consistent width above or below a headline, and the current settings don't work well to create lines of a specific length, rather it only allows for lines which are related to the length of the text or column.
