Description dstrozzi 2005-05-09 01:26:14 UTC

Maybe this is a feature request, maybe a bug:

When I create a tab stop in Impress, I cannot make it anything besides a
left-stop on the rule.  In writer, when you double-click on a tab stop you're
taken to the paragraph edit dialog and can change its type.  Also, the icon at
the left end of the ruler lets you select what tab stops you create.  Neither of
these works for me in Impress.

I'm using OOo 2.0 beta, build 1.9.100, on a windows XP machine.

Thanks, and keep up the great work on OOo!

Bug or feature?
Comment 2 christian.guenther 2005-05-12 19:01:17 UTC
You can change the tabs in 'Format / Paragraph'
I thing changing the tabs in the ruler is an enhancement.

Thanks for valuable feedback (via email private email):
I fired up OOo 2.4
under opensuse, and lo, tab stops work in impress!  You can't change
them from being left-justified, but that's fine.  I'd close out this

I have just tested with 2.4 and confirm that the original enhancement request
has not been addressed - and would be useful (to replicate the behaviour of Writer).
Therefore, setting Issue to confirmed and leaving Open.
