2. Working with tab stops and Tabsoorten (base)

The [Tab]key is used to superimpose text in a straight line. Spaces can't do that very precisely. With the [Tab]key you can jump to fixed positions in a line.

Standard tab stop

The Standard tab stop is every 1.25 cm. We can't see it on the ruler.

  • Open a new document. Click file , and Then press new. Choose a blank document.
  • We first put the ruler in the picture. Go to the tab Image and tick To in the group Show:
  • A ruler is now displayed on both the top and the left sidebar side of the document:
  • Use the [Tab]key to create the price list below. Use one tab each between the different parts.
    So, for example: Product[Tab]Size[Tab] Frametype[Tab]Price

Changing tab stops with the ruler

In The price list we used standard tabs. We don't see these on the ruler. However, We can also create your own tab stops using the ruler.

  • Tab positions are created in the paragraph where the cursor is located. To create tab positions for the entire prize list, we must first select them.
    Select the entire prize list.
  • Go to the ruler at the top click below the 3 CM. A tab stop has now been released:

    You will also see that texts are too high Size Now all on tab stop 3 are.
  • Add more tab positions at 6 and 9 cm.
  • We can remove tab positions by dragging them out of the ruler.
