  1. Open the document's Document Editing window.
  2. From the Format menu, select Tabs to open the Tabs dialog.
  3. To add a new tab stop, enter the location of the tab (in inches) and click the Add button.
  4. Click OK save your changes and close the Tabs dialog. 


  • To delete a tab stop, choose Format > Tabs, then highlight it and click the Delete button.
  • To delete all tab stops, click the Clear All button.
