DrawMerge
### Zero-Pad

You can optionally have DrawMerge **Zero-pad** the numbers it generates to any number of places.

Unpadded numbers look like this:

1

2

3

Zero-padded numbers look like this:

000001

000002

000003

You can specify the number of places to which numbers will be zero-padded.

Zero-padding can help you solve text alignment problems in your output. By applying zero-padding, you ensure that all of the numbers output by DrawMerge will be the same width.

Note that DrawMerge will not let you specify zero-padding to fewer places than the number of places in the number in the **To** field. For example, if you enter **To: 1000** DrawMerge won't accept a zero-padding value of less than 4, since there are 4 places in 1000.

You can, of course, specify more places than that.
