I want to unify the tab stops in two (or more) paragraphs that have different tab stops. I select the paragraphs, but when I enter the menu Format - Paragraph… the tab Tabs does not appear.

I can only change the tab stops from one paragraph at a time.

First delete all tab stops in one paragraph:

  1. Place the cursor in one paragraph.
  2. Choose menu Format - Paragraph… - Tabs, press Delete All and OK.

Next, delete all tab stops in the other paragraphs:

  1. Select (at least part of) all the paragraphs from which you want to remove the tab stops.
  2. Choose menu Edit - Repeat: Apply atributes (same as Ctrl+Shift+Y).

Now, set the new tab stops:

  1. Select (at least part of) all the paragraphs in which you want to set tab stops.
  2. Choose menu Format - Paragraph… - Tabs, select Position and Type, press New and OK.

Also consider working with Styles. They can save you a lot of work.
