Hi, this is a mysterious thing which seem to be imtruduced in Ooo 2.0 since the
following worked in 1.1:

mainly for bibliography me (an most german users who want to write a diploma and
things like this) need this format:

[##]    Names of the authors
        Title of the book etc
        Address, Year

this was possible in doing:
[##]TAB Names of the authors                         TAB
        Title of the book etc                        TAB
        Address, Year

...in order to obtain the essential line breaks. But in version 2 this doesnt
work anymore, now you get:

[##]TAB Names of the authors
                         TAB
        Title of the book etc
                         TAB
        Address, Year

and this is not good. This issue seems also to apply to any other kinds of
indexes as far as i tested. 

Now, for the solution it would be nice to have it working again as in OOo 1
(like they do if they are created in OOo 1 and opened in OOo 2 )
 
BUT

sincerely, i think it would be much simpler for a solution and easier for the
user to have added the option to insert also line breaks in addition to tabs
when formatting any index. Like this it would also be more transparent, user
friendly and ... well, working :-) Additionally line breaks are also very useful
when making other indexes like bibliography.

many thanks.

ES->OS: As described. in OOo 1.x, a tab set outside of the text area use to jump
to the next line but did not through the trailing text on an other line.
