Default How do I insert a hard tab?

Hi there,

Not sure which version of WordPerfect you used, but in WP 12 Alt + F7 gives
you flush right. If, instead, you are referring to Ctrl + F7, that gives you
a hard tab which is MS Word speak is a hanging indent.

You can either click on Format (or highlight the paragraph and right-click
and select paragraph) and paragraph and under indentation, where it says
Special select Hanging. You can select the size of the indentation there.

I think there is a "quick key" you can use as well which is Ctrl + T. I
hope this has been helpful to you.
You can also just move the ruler on your toolbar (the triangle) to the place
where you want your hanging indent to begin.

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...
