Description cjsmall 2007-10-09 19:32:36 UTC
When setting tabs manually by dragging along the ruler, it is almost impossible
to get a new tabstop to align with an existing one on another line since the
resolution for placing tabstops is so fine-grained.  You can get close, but
rarely achieve perfect alignment.  It would be good if a tabstop resolution
could be set in the Options menu (1/10", 1/20", etc.) and then when placing
tabstops, they would "snap" to the closest resolution setting.  This would
insure that stops on multiple lines could be easily aligned.

I accidentally submitted this as a defect when it should have been classified as
an enhancement.  Trying to update now ...
