Chapter 49. Setting Tabs > Working with Tabs

Working with Tabs

To work with tabs in InDesign, open the Tabs palette by choosing Tabs from the Type menu (or press Command-Shift-T/Ctrl-Shift-T; see Figure 49-1). Unlike XPress, which affixes a temporary ruler at the top of the text box whenever the Tab dialog box is open, InDesign’s Tabs palette contains a ruler. If you want the ruler to align with the text frame, change your view to show the top of the text frame at its full width, select the frame with the Selection tool or the Type tool, and then click the magnet button on the right side of the palette. The palette should jump into position at the top of the frame. However, note that you don’t have to align the ruler in order set tab stops.
