Yes, I see it now, Klaus;

If I didn't know better, I'd say the field is acting like a 
right-justified column in a spreadsheet.

Just as strange, if I make the font size large enough, the end of the 
text before the tab disappears under the text after the tab.  This 
conjures up memories of left-justified spreadsheet entries.

Is it just coincidence that Vertical grid is listed among Table properties?
