I am trying to use a decimal tab at 5.75" in a LO Writer document. The page format is landscape with 2 columns, 0.5" margins, 1.0" spacing between the columns. The other tabs I am using are 0.25" (Left), 2.25" (L), 4.5" (R), 7.75" (L) and 10.0" (R).
On most lines the tab at 5.75" is a standard left tab, but for a small group of lines, I would like to align Roman numerals using the decimal tab selection. For those lines, I have removed the left tab and inserted the decimal tab. The decimal tab will not work properly. It behaves just like a left tab.
Is this a glitch, or is there some special way to use the decimal tab selection, one that doesn’t seem obvious to me right now? Thanks for any help you can provide!
