Setting tabulators for several pages

I need to set over 300 tabulators - I can only set one for one line at a time. When I select a bigger area covering all the pages I need this on, I can no longer set tabs. Does this mean that I have to do this tedious work over 300 times? Or is there a simpler way?

You can set tabulators on paragraph styles, and then use those paragraph styles as needed. Check my book to know more about styles, tabs and a lot more.

Why do you need so many tabulators? If you are trying to set a first line indent, you don't need tabulators at all! Just set that indent on the paragraph style!

Generally speaking, tabulators are a last resource, and if you need so many probably there is an easier way to get the same result.

Thanks for answering. The right tabulators are a necessity in financial documents. I don't need first indents. But I could used indents for later line! I also need them for making a Table of Contents. I do not understand how to work with styles, The drop-down menu says me nothing.
