Default How do I insert a hard tab?

That works if I just want to set an indent, but I want to set a hard tab
that goes away when I do a return to start a new paragraph. It looks like
I'll just have to do a few more keystokes while I'm formatting my documents...
Thank you for your quick response.

If you are wanting to inset text, there are various ways to do this. One is
to use the Format | Paragraph menu and select the amount of the inset. There
are also buttons on the ruler to indent and decrease indent. If you want a
keyboard method, hold down the Ctrl key and strike the M key (you can do this
more than once for larger indents). Does this help?

I used to be a Word Perfect user....The function key I used then for a hard
tab was Alt-f7. All the text following this hard tab would automatically
indent to the same tab setting until I hard returned. I need a place to ask
these simple questions that really irritate you when you are trying to learn
a new program...
