Setting Paragraph Tabs

Tabs set text or numerical data alignment in relation to the edges of a document. A tab stop is a predefined stopping point along thedocument's typing line. Default tab stops are set every half-inch on the ruler, but you can set multiple tabs per paragraph at any location. Each paragraph in a document contains its own set of tab stops. The default tab stops do not appear on the ruler, but the manual tab stops you set do appear. Once you place a tab stop, you can drag the tab stop to position it where you want. If you want to add or adjust tab stops in multiple paragraphs, simply select the paragraphs first.

Create and Clear a Tab Stop

Select the text or click in the paragraph you want to format.

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

To move a tab, drag the tab stop to position it where you want.

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