"it only toggles the rulers on the edge of the window"
But then, if you insert the cursor into an editable field... :-)
Aha! That's the problem! But oh no, I still have an issue! What I am trying to do is get a list to display horizontally. So I got the list, then used the Substitute() function to substitute tab characters (Char(9)) for the paragraph returns. Now I am displaying that in a field - but of course, the field is not editable since it is a calculated field. How do I more precisely space them?
I can do it using the set tabs window, but it is not so interactive as being able to view the ruler in the field.
Change the field type from calculation to text with option of auto-enter the same calculation of your previous calc, but leaving the text unchanged when the field is active ; something like:
Get ( ActiveFieldContent ) = Self ; Self ;
your previous calc here
Another way is to populate a normal text field with a script ( that handles the calculation )
