PowerPoint: Tabs Act as Spaces PSS ID Number: Q43866 Article last modified on 06-05-1991 PSS database name: M_PowerPt
In Microsoft PowerPoint version 2.00, depending on the configuration, the tabs in text boxes may act as fixed-size spaces. In particular, machines that have Microsoft Mail and a debugger installed exhibit this problem.
Microsoft has confirmed this to be a problem in Microsoft PowerPoint version 2.00. This problem was corrected in Microsoft PowerPoint version. To obtain an update to the current version of PowerPoint, call Microsoft End User Sales and Service at (800) 426-9400 or Microsoft International Customer Service at (206) 936-8661.
