After adding some launchers and indicators to my xfce panel - the panel now shows this huge empty space on the right side.

Normally, all these icons would be aligned to the right and the center space is used to show which applications are open. This isn't the case anymore - when no apps are open, these icons shift left.

How can I restore the previous behaviour?

Add a separator to the left and check the expand option.
