You're not supposed to use tabs at all. First line indent only.cblewgolf said:So I did w/o tabs this time and just kept it left justified. Well, now on the Kindle preview, there are no paragraph tabs. Is there an easy way to add tabs to each paragraph or do I have to go back and 'tab' each one?
^this. You should be using paragraph styles. You should be able to define a style and apply it to your manuscript. Better than adding 1,245 tabs back in. Also keeping a backup file when you start playing with things is advised as well.Gertie Kindle 'a/k/a Margaret Lake' said:You're not supposed to use tabs at all. First line indent only.
This is the easiest way to do it. When I start a new document, the first thing I do is set my first line indent this way (works in Word and in opensource software.) Then each time you hit Return for a new paragraph, it automatically indents the first line.Zoe Cannon said:Do you mean adding tabs to a Word doc or your .mobi file? If it's your Word doc, highlight all the text, then go up to the ruler at the top and drag the top half of the hourglass shape at the left to where you want your first line indent to be. Then go back and get rid of the indent for your chapter headings, title page, and what-have-you.
