Description nw3227 2010-01-21 15:14:53 UTC
In the user guide section entitled "Working with paragraph styles," the following 
statement appears: "Note that it is not possible to define tabulations that exceed 
the page margin. In the rare cases where it may be needed, use a borderless table 
instead." I think the need is much greater -- whenever there is a table of 
contents with multi-line individual entries and a dot leader to the page number 
(e.g., in almost all legal briefs). The workaround is ineffective when you're 
using a dot leader. BTW, Microsoft Word allows tabs to extend beyond the page 
margin. I don't see the problem in modifying OpenOffice to do the same.
