Find the Tabs Dialog Box in Word 2007

Monday, August 24th, 2009 by | Filed Under: MS Word

Have you noticed that in Word 2007 your ability to format tab stops seems to be missing?

Are you suffering withdrawl symptoms because you can’t seem to find this little gem?


Ok, so we all know that it’s not really gone but where in the world did they put it?

Well, I can think of a couple of methods for reaching the Tabs dialog box in word 2007…

First, if you have the ruler displayed you can double-click on a tab stop.


(To display the ruler either go to the View tab of the Ribbon and check the Ruler box or click the View Ruler button located above the vertical scroll bar.)


The other way, very useful for those of you who don’t like to use the ruler, is to click the dialog launcher in the Paragraph section of the Home tab of the Ribbon.


In the bottom left corner of the Paragraph dialog box find and click the Tabs button.

That’s all there is to it! Formatting tab stops is as easy as it ever was – now that you know how to find it.
