I am fairly new to LibreOffice and I really want to get to grips with it, but I cannot find the instructions I need. I want to have a table in Writer to which I add a new line each day. I would like the first column to number itself automatically when I click the tab button to add the new line.
If I click on the first cell and click on numbering, the number comes up O.K., but then when I click tab again to get to the next cell, and I get another line space and the number moves forward instead of the cursor going to the next cell in the same row.

Try not to press Tab, click the right arrow
