[libreoffice-users] Tabs in selection of text


I have a number of "paragraphs" of text (job listing section of a resume) for which I'd like to add tab stops.  I select the lines and click the tab stop I want, then click in the ruler, but nothing happens.  I see no menu item to format tabs, though I did stumble into one dialog box with Tabs that required manual setting and it was unclear just where those tabs would be applied.  In any case, I can't find that any more.

In the help document (https://help.libreoffice.org/Common/Inserting_and_Editing_Tab_Stops) it says for changing one or more paragraphs: "Select the paragraphs, then click inside the ruler."  That is most definitely not working.  Finally, if I clear all formatting, I get the default tab stops and could re-format the entire section that way.  But that's a bit of work given all the formatting I'd lose.

What do I do to quickly and simply edit tab stops, and why is it so difficult in LO?

FYI I find the Styles aspect of LibreOffice to be entirely unintuitive and I've never been able to work with them.  I realize that should be a goal but it's not possible in my current timeline.

Thank you!
