Where and how does one adjust the text tab settings? I am typing a table schedule on a drawing and want to adjust the tab spacing between the columns. The default space is too wide and it looks as if the tab spacing can be adjusted - but I don't know how.
Just click on the ruler at the top to create a tab stop. These can be set individually for each line of text or the same for the whole text box by selecting all the text prior to creating the tab stop.
They can also be adjusted by dragging them along the ruler or removed by dragging them off the ruler.

Just click and drag in the ruler of the text editor.
It seems a little buggy to me as sometimes you can create a new tab between existing tabs and sometimes it just moves the next tab along.
The tabs also seem to be set line by line - not for the entire paragraph when you are adjusting them.
Although once you have the first line set up and then 'Enter' for a new line it will use the tabs of the line above (but still they adjust separately).

I hadn't tried selecting all to adjust all lines at once.
Mind you I had never tried to adjust the tabs before either.

While editing a Text Block, you can also right-click the Ruler or anywhere in the text block and select the Indents and Tabs command of the context menu. In the upcoming Dialog you can numerically set indent positions and define and set tab positions.
