    I cannot apply tabs...

    Secretly_Swedish Community Member

      So, I'm currently having an incredibly frustrating time with tabs in Indesign, in as much as I can't apply any new ones. I've been using InDesign for the best part of 5 years, have worked in publishing for a lot of that time, and never had this issue before. I don't think I'm doing anything wrong, but never day never!

       

      Currently running CS5.5, I've tried trashing the preference, have uninstalled and reinstalled, and to no avail.

       

      If I open up a file that already has tabs applied, I am still able to edit those, and make amends. However, if I place a new text box and attempt to align text using the Tabs tool in that, it will not work. I'm not sure if I'm making this clear enough, and not sure if this screen grab helps - but invisibles aren't showing the Tab icon.

       

      Am I just being a moron? Any help would be greatly appreciated.
