    Word (All)

    I have read about "Jason Tabs" in the various MVP pages. What exactly are they and where does the name come from?
    Curious

    Mike,

    Here is my understanding of them, since I have never had the pleasure of experiencing them.

    They are tab stops that keep reappearing after you delete them time and time agin.

    The name comes from them main?? character in the "Nightmare on Elm Street" series of movie, because the Jason never really goes away, and neither do the movies.

    Thanks Bryan. I hate not knowing the source of a term. This must be the fastest turnaround ever for a message.

    Glad to help. I just hope I got the movie right.

    And this will probably be a faster turn around on an answer. I am just killing time waiting for Pizza to arrive for dinner.

    One more piece of information for you. You get Jason tabs in paragraphs that use styles that have associated Number or Bullet styles.

    You can sometimes fix them by reapplying all the bullet and number styles for all associated levels in a single visit to the Format Bullets and Numbers dialog box - but you must make sure that you have allowed sufficient spacing in the Number position and Text position for all the numbers you have specified or the Jason tabs will come back again.

    Gee Bryan,
    I'm really sorry - <img src=/S/sorry.gif border=0 alt=sorry width=15 height=15> - there you were helping out a 'limey' in distress - to good effect and just waiting for your pizza, and these guys go for U - <img src=/S/sad.gif border=0 alt=sad width=15 height=15> . Seriously chaps ( a good old English term) , thanks for all you help, I have learnt a lot from these exchanges. I teach IT to adults and they are amazed at my depth of knowledge. I don't tell them that it all comes from <font face="Comic Sans MS">Woodys Lounge</font face=comic> .

    No worries Mike.

    That's why the Lounge is great. When someone makes a mistake <img src=/S/doh.gif border=0 alt=doh width=15 height=15> <img src=/S/stupidme.gif border=0 alt=stupidme width=30 height=30> there are others out there to set the record straight.
