@tab(1) and extra spaces

First, I try to avoid using the @tab(1) function whenever possible and instead try to use styling or custom styling in our documents instead.

However, whenever I do use the @tab(1) function I end up with an extra space in the word document where the function was used. Is there a way to avoid this issue?

Hi Elmer,

If I understand your question correctly, you want to just insert 1 tab and 2 tabs are being inserted. Is that correct?

In that case, using “@tab(0)” instead of @tab(1) should solve the issue.

Hey Senne,

I hope you’ve been well.

I just want one tab, so I am doing @tab(1). The output is a tab followed by a space then followed by my text.

Here is the output:

And here is the coding:

Hi Elmer,

The space does indeed seem like something that is added automatically. I have flagged it for internal review.

I’m sure you’ve looked at this option since you mentioned that you – wisely – avoid the @tab function when possible, but is this not something you can achieve via custom styling of the clause’s content body? (see screenshot below where I would try to achieve this)
