    Using Tab Stops in Fields or Text Objects

    PJSpark

      Summary

      Using Tab Stops in Fields or Text Objects

      Product

      FileMaker Pro

      Version

      12.02

      Operating system version

      OSX 10.8

      Description of the issue

      When creating a right tab, it only right justifies the first word and the rest spills beyond the tab marker.
      Also, I haven't been able to get a tab with a leader character to show up in a field or text object

      Expected result

      [TAB]                      This is right tab [R.Tab Mark]

      Actual result

      [TAB]                                      This [R.Tab Mark]is right tab

               Edit:

               All mentioned above seems to work as expected in Browse mode, if user editing a field and using the ruler, creates and uses tabs in this way. Even the leaders work. So I did same way in Layout mode. The Tab requester has a set button, which applies your changes. and this did work.

               But I haven't been successful doing this in edit layout mode using the inspector panel and tab section.

               If you need to setup tab stops, its best to use the ruler and the tab requester, rather than the inspector
