How to Get to the Tabs Dialog Box in Word 2007
When you want really precise control over the placement of tabs in your Word 2007 documents, you can use the Tabs dialog box. But how do you get there?
There are two ways. The simplest way is to double-click the mouse in the middle of the Ruler (on the light gray part). Of course, that also sets a tab stop, which can be frustrating.
The other way to get to the Tabs dialog box is to summon the Paragraph dialog box: do so by clicking the Dialog Box Launcher button in the lower-right corner of the Paragraph group, on the Home tab.
When the Paragraph dialog box is visible, click the Tabs button in the lower-left corner to bring forth the Tabs dialog box.
