Tab stability in document

I have a document that uses Tabs to indent subheadings - very much like an outline - but it is a plain text document. When I save the document and open again a day or so later the Tabs invariably indent further, i.e. additional Tabs are added so long lines end ou word wrapped to the next line. How do I keep the number of Tabs I place in the document from changing spontaneously? After several reopenings of the document, I end up with so many extra Tabs entered that the original "outline" form is unrecognizable. Thank you for any help you can provide. Sincerely, John Parsons
