Tabs

Clear All the Tabs At Once

Is there anything more tedious than clearing out a mess of misplaced tab stops by dragging them off the tab ruler one by one, paragraph by paragraph? No, there isn't. QuarkXPress lets you do this really easily.


It's easy here, too, though many people overlook it: the Tabs palette has a flyout menu. Choose “Clear All” from that menu (Figure 3-20). Bang, zoom, all custom tabs are cleared. In fact, you could shift-click multiple text frames with the Type tool, open the Tabs palette and choose that command to clear out all the custom tabs in all those selected text frames. Even better, if you need to do this a lot, you can assign a keyboard shortcut to this command using Edit > Keyboard Shortcuts.
