Setting Paragraph Tabs

In your message, tabs set how text or numerical data aligns in relation to the message margins. A tab stop is a predefined stopping point along the message's typing line. Default tab stops are set every half-inch, but you can set multiple tabs per paragraph at any location. Choose from four text tab stops: left, right, center, and decimal (for numerical data). The bar tab inserts a vertical bar at the tab stop. You can use the Tab button on the horizontal ruler to switch between the available tabs.

Create and Clear a Tab Stop

In an e-mail message, select one or more paragraphs in which you want to set a tab stop.

Click the Tab button on the horizontal ruler until it shows the type of tab stop you want.

Click the ruler where you want to set the tab stop.

If necessary, drag the tab stop to position it where you want.

To display a numerical measurement in the ruler where the tab is placed, press and hold Alt as you drag.

To clear a tab stop, drag it off the ruler.
