    Re: Erratic Tabs (2000 & XP)

    My guess is that this is by design depending on what particular thing is happening. I would certainly turn off the "Tabs and backspace set left indent" setting as this is complicating matters.

    Does it make a difference if your cursor is inside a table cell at the time?

    Does it make a difference if your cursor is sitting at the start of a paragraph or not?

    It may also depend on what paragraph type is selected at the time (outline level numbering vs not), or if you are working in outline level view.
