Default How do I insert a hard tab?

Create a paragraph style with a first line indent.

That works if I just want to set an indent, but I want to set a hard
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...
