Hi All,

I am new to programing in rev. but have been developing for HC since vs 1.2

One of the applications I am developing has a fair number of text generated reports. One
item that I need is the ability to tab inset a paragraph.

It would look like the following.

   I have searched through the rev. dictionary but
   could not find anything that would allow me
   to develop this tabbed inset paragraph.

       I have developed scripts that will insert a
       predetermined number of spaces in order to \
       generate this kind of look. Adding any text then can
change the look of the report. It ends up looking
something like       this.

Most simple word processors can do this. I would like to see this added to the future
features request.

Is there anything in rev that can do this?

Any work other around suggests would be appreciated.
