Large Default Tabs in Outlining Causes Margin Problem

The information in this article applies to:
- Microsoft Word for the Macintosh versions 4.0, 5.0


If the default tab stop setting in a Word version 4.0 document is greater than .569 inch, the text within the Outline mode can extend into the right margin and, in some cases, can be truncated.


The extent text extends into the margin or is truncated depends on the width of the right margin as well as the width of the default tab stop (in the Format Document window). A default tab stop CANNOT be greater than .708 inch and still have the text in the Outline mode observe the margin. A default tab stop of .708 inch can be used ONLY if the right margin is .5 inch. The wider the right margin, the smaller the size of the default tab stop. The following are two examples:

Right Margin Maximum Tab Stops ———— —————–

1.00 inch .639 inch 1.25 inch .569 inch

The text looks, prints, and shows in Print Preview properly from Galley View. The problem of truncation and the problem with the right margin appears on the screen in Print Preview and when printed in the Outline mode of Word.

Microsoft has confirmed this to be a problem with Word version 4.0. We are researching this problem and will post new information here as it becomes available.
