When using the word processor tool and placing tabs on the ruler in Microsoft PowerPoint, a combination of regular tabs and decimal tabs can be applied such that when you place a regular tab, it changes into a decimal tab.

To avoid this problem, place the regular tabs first, then place the decimal tabs.

For more information about this problem, call Microsoft Product Support Services at (206) 454-2030.

For example, this problem is exhibited as a result of the following steps:

  1. Create a text box using the word processor tool. From the Text menu, choose Show Text Ruler.
  2. Place regular tabs at 1 inch and 5 inches.
  3. Place decimal tabs at 2 inches and 4 inches.
  4. If a regular tab is then placed at 3 inches, it changes to a decimal tab.
