I have Rootsmagic 4. I would like to use the tab. key to line up text in my notes, but the tab key does not work. It works O.K. in other programmes. The result is that my columns do not line up which is very frustrating when I want to print out the notes.
Can anybody help me please.
Many thanks. Millie

Nope, that's a downside of RM Notes.

You can use the space key to line up columns but, the way they line up in the notes and the way they appear in the printed report may not be the same. Your choice of note font and size can also affect the appearance in a report when using spaces to make columns.
