Lesson 11. Tabs and Line Spacing > Creating Custom Tab Stops

Creating Custom Tab Stops

If the default tab stops are not suited to your needs, you can add custom tab stops. The number, spacing, and type of custom tab stops are totally up to you.

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

  2. Click the tab symbol at the left end of the Ruler until it displays the marker for the type of tab you want to insert (refer to Figure 11.1).

  3. Point at the approximate tab stop location on the Ruler, and press and hold the left mouse button. A dashed vertical line will extend 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.
