Default Adding space between numbers in list and the text

I have an outline using styles. The spacing between the numbers 1-9 is great. But when double digits start there isn't even one space between the number, ), and the text. How can I add just one space to all the numbers and ) to the text so they all still line up correctly. I don't like going from 9) Text, to 10)Text. Or is there a way to change the number alignment to look like:
8) Text
9) Text

10) Text

and not:
8) Text
9) Text

If your outline styles are not set up following the steps here:

they need to be.

See Number Alignment 2007 and later by Suzanne Barnhill, MVP.
