Tabulator: How They Work

designer
(combit Team) #1
Valid from List & Label 7
A tabulator separates a paragraph in two sections. You can adjust the tab properties in the formula assistant dialog for this paragraph (card page "Tab"):

"Position" specifies the distance of the (virtual) dividing separator from the left border, a negative value refers to the right border.

"Tab Alignment" specifies the text alignment in the second section.

Sample ({TAB} corresponds to the inserted tab character):

A{TAB}tab test!

with "Position 50mm" and "left" causes "tab test!" to begin 5cm from the left border of the text object.:

A ............tab test!..........
<- 5cm ->|

A{TAB}tab test!

with "Position 50mm" and "right" causes the paragraph to be divided 5cm from the left border and "tab test!" to appear right-aligned within this second section:

A ......................tab test!
<- 5cm ->|
