nope, no idea. Only that you place the asterisk directly above the tab.

• Add text fields to serve as the Tab labels
• Add an object name to the Tab or first field in tab
• Make the text field a button with a script to go to object
• Set the Tab width to 0
Also consider using coloured text or background instead of asterisk by using conditional formatting on the text fields.
Hey, I've come across the same problem.
I got completely rid of the tab panel names (the ones that you manage in the Tab Control Setup dialog) and placed text fields on each of the tab panel controls. Then I added conditional formatting to each of the text fields, something like:
if the field that is placed on the tab panel contains data -> green font color,
otherwise -> gray font color.
You could do the same thing with your asterisk: black if field contains data, background color if not.
This is a bit of layout work, but has worked well so far.

I have put a sample file on the last post, which shows a technique to make faux tabs, which also make use of the auto-resize anchors.
Wow! Thanks for great ideas in such a quick fashion. I think I can make any of those work.
