Setting Tabs

PowerPoint includes default tab stops at every inch; when you press the Tab key, the text moves to the next tab stop. You can control the location of the tab stops using the ruler. When you set a tab, tab markers appear on the ruler. Tabs apply to an entire paragraph, not a single line within that paragraph. You can also clear a tab by removing it from the ruler.

Set a Tab

Click the paragraph or select the paragraphs whose tabs you want to modify. You can also select a text object to change the tabs for all paragraphs in that object.

If necessary, click the View menu, and then click Ruler to display the ruler.

Click the Tab button at the left of the horizontal ruler until you see the type of tab you want.

Click the ruler where you want to set the tab.
