That's because there is no property called "Tab in Return".
By default, the Rev Property Inspector hides the "English-like" names
used in the language and instead shows what is presumably an
"Even-More-English-Like" label. The problem is that there is then no
direct way to know the name of the property you're setting.
In this case the actual property name is "autoTab".
The first thing I tell my clients to do when they begin learning Rev is:
1. Go to Preferences
2. In the section with the heading "Property labels are:", click the
option labeled "Name of LiveTalk Property".
Once that's done the Inspector provides reinforcement of the tokens
you'll have to learn for scripting anyway.
And without that, as you've found it just raises the learning curve.
