Set tab stops

In Document Editor, you can change tab stops i.e. the position the cursor advances to when you press the Tab key on the keyboard.

To set tab stops you can use the horizontal ruler:

  1. Select the necessary tab stop type clicking the Left Tab Stop button button in the upper left corner of the working area. The following three tab types are available:
    • Left Left Tab Stop button - lines up your text by the left side at the tab stop position; the text moves to the right from the tab stop as you type. Such a tab stop will be indicated on the horizontal ruler by the Left Tab Stop marker marker.
    • Center Center Tab Stop button - centers the text at the tab stop position. Such a tab stop will be indicated on the horizontal ruler by the Center Tab Stop marker marker.
    • Right Right Tab Stop button - lines up your text by the right side at the tab stop position; the text moves to the left from the tab stop as you type. Such a tab stop will be indicated on the horizontal ruler by the Right Tab Stop marker marker.
  2. Click on the bottom edge of the ruler where you want to place the tab stop. Drag it along the ruler to change its position. To remove the added tab stop drag it out of the ruler.
