Post subject:  How to insert tab automatically after every outline list?

I need a tab inserted after the Roman numeral or letter or numeral in the Outline styles.

How do I do that?

E.g.,
Code:
I.<tab>Heading No. 1
  A.<tab>Subheading No. 1
    1.<tab>Sub-subheading No. 1.


I figure I need to add it in the Style for the related headings. However, when I tried to type in a tab, it doesn't work. Is there some code to input there?

My guess is you need to type Alt-Tab, rather than plain tab. Any use? Or have you tried that?

Mark,

Thank you. Yes, I think that Option[Alt]-Tab is what works.

However, I was surprised to find that didn't exactly do what I wanted.

What is happening is this:
I want create a Table of Contents based on an outline. Nisus is stripping out the tabs between the, say, "I." and the text and replacing them with spaces. Is there a way to make NWP retain the tabs there?

I see this, but I can't seem to get NWP to allow a tab character there.

I may be wrong about this, but I think the stripping of tabs is necessary for the TOC creation to go through.

Hello, Philip!

Thanks for that info. Maybe I just need to do what I'm doing differently.

I was marking the entire heading for the TOC. That way the "I." or "A." or "1." carried over. I can just set it up so only the actual sentence of the heading is marked for TOC and then have NWP apply the Outline paragraph style. The reason I wanted to do it the first way was so that I could see clearly in the TOC (a stripped-down outline, actually) whether everything was in fact numbered correctly in the body of the document and if the points were properly parallel. I'll try a different approach.
