Chapter 8. Aligning Information and Form... > Controlling Alignment Using Tabs

Controlling Alignment Using Tabs

Back in the typewriter’s heyday, tab stops were the end-all when it came to formatting tables, charts, and columns. Now Word offers a variety of text alignment tools, including specific features you can use to create columns, tables, and charts. But even with the advanced Word formatting features, tab stops continue to play a key role in aligning text and performing other tab-related activities. For example, tabs frequently come into play when you want to create simple lists, tables of contents (including dotted leader lines between titles and page numbers), center-aligned or decimal-aligned text, and so forth. Figure 8-6 shows a variety of tab styles in action.
