Hi Robert,

1.25 cm works great.

Thank you so much!

Charles -

I admit that those instructions are confusing. Can you use the menus to go
to Tools > Options > LibreOffice Writer > General? There, under Settings,
you should see 'Measurement unit' and then 'Tab stops'. In that field, my
LibreOffice says 1.25 cm, meaning that I have tab stops set every 1.25 cm
across the page.

This was the default setting. It seems to be what you want, and I don't
know why you don't have it. Are you using a special template file? What
paragraph style are you using?

- Robert

I see a lot of words on this page .... but few make sense to me.

I want to set tabs so when I press the Tab key the 1st goes over to the
right a bit to the right then when I press the Tab key again it moves the
cursor incementaly ot eh right and so on.

Now, when I press the Tab key it moves the cursor about 1/4 of the way
across the page but when I press the Tab key again ity leaps the curso way
overot the right.

I don't see from the above link how to step by step (screenshots help here)
set the Tabs to move incermwentralt.

Thank you.
