*     Setting Tabs

 

 

Tabs are a paragraph-formatting feature used to align text in MS Word. When you press the Tab key. Word inserts a tab character and moves the cursor or the insertion point to the tab setting, called the tab stop. You can set custom tabs or use Word's default tab settings. Tabs are set to distribute text evenly between the left and right margins. Word's default tabs are set every half-inch. These tabs are indicated at the bottom of the horizontal ruler by tiny tick marks. If you do not want to use the default tabs that are set at half-inch tabs, you have two choices. You can either change the distance between the default/existing tabs or create custom tabs. Custom tab settings are indicated on the horizontal ruler by tab markers. There are two ways to set tabs - by either using the Tabs Dialog Box or using the ruler. (See Figure 5.4.10)  

 

 

 

*   Setting tabs by using the Ruler is an easy, two-step process.

Click the Tab Alignment button on the left of the ruler to choose the type of alignment.

Click the position on the ruler to set the tab.      

 

 

*    Steps to set tabs in a document by using the Tabs dialog box:      

  • Open Microsoft Word on your computer.
  • Put the cursor in the document where you want the new tab to take place.
  • Click on the Format menu.
  • Click on the Tabs option in the Format menu. The Tabs dialog box appears.
  • Under the Tab Stop Position, enter where you would like the tab to appear. i.e. 0.5", 1", 2" etc. The default tabs are set every 0.5".
  • When you have finished making your selection, click on the OK button.
