Might have found a little tab bug. In the facing-pages master page below I have a center tab set to the left of the book title (blurred so no-one can steal my ineffably creative idea) and to the right of the page number. The available space is 4.25" and the tab is set at 2.125. But the title text is not centered.


 So I entered a right tab to the right of the title, at 4.25", and it worked out fine.


Is it me, or should this be an unnecessary step to make a center tab work?

While on the subject: it would be convenient to have little rulers appear over the text when setting tabs, instead of one's having to peer at the main rulers and attempt to do higher math.

Rather than using a center tab, wouldn't it be simpler to just center-align the text?

Usually the text should be left align for tabs to work fine. If it was center aligned, the center tab won't work as expected, the text being centered at the right of the tab.


And you can show/hide the Frame text ruler with this button (sometimes hidden on small screens)
