Lesson 13. Setting Tabs and Line Spacing > Creating Custom Tab Stops

Creating Custom Tab Stops

If the default tab stops sare not suited to your needs, you can add custom tab stops. The number, spacing, and type of custom tab stops is entirely up to you:

  1. Select the paragraphs that will have custom tabs. If no text is selected, the new tabs affect the paragraph containing the cursor and the new text you type.

  2. Click the tab symbol at the left of the ruler until it displays the marker for the type of tab you want to insert (refer to Figure 13.1 for the different tab symbols).

  3. Point at the approximate tab stop location on the ruler, and press and hold the left mouse button. A dashed vertical line extends down through the document showing the tab stop position relative to your text.

  4. Move the mouse left or right until the tab stop is at the desired location.

  5. Release the mouse button.
