    tab stops: Ooops. Nevermind.

    straightlife Level 1

      Folks, I'd delete this post if I could, but can't figure out how to do it.

      I did figure out how to modify the tab stops. 

      I selected the entire text.

      moved the tab.

      Seems to have worked.

      Below is the original question.


      I've spent about an hour on this and can't figure it out.

      I've reviewed the online tutorials, but nothing works in my real life with cc as it does in the tutorials.


      I've got a document with a tab at the start of every paragraph. I can see it when I view invisibles.

      Unfortunately, the tabs do not take up enough spaces.


      Now I could try to do a search and replace with aTWO tab stops, which would work, but I'd much rather just set the one tab stop to be over at the quarter inch mark. (I do have about 200 pages of text)


      When I click in the tab thingy and select the tab image in the document and use the magnet, I can set that specific tab where I want it, but all the others remain at  24th of an inch in. (or so). In the image below I can grab that tab and move it, but it doesn't affect any other tabs in the document.

      Is there any way to change the global settings on the initial tab stop?
