The best thing to do in that case is probably to clone the field, make your
changes in the clone, use revPrintField to print it, and then delete the
clone once you're done with it. When you print a string with the
revPrintText command, the string doesn't have a tabStops property - this is
why the columns are being lost. By using a field and the revPrintField
command you can retain the tab stops.
