A semi-colon delimited list of intervals between tab stops, measured in inches.

Tab stops are thus adjustable. For example, if $Tabs is


…the first tab stop will be one inch from the left edge. The second tab stop will be three inches to the right of the first, four inches from the edge. The third tab stops will be placed at intervals of 0.5".

In older files the default tabs settings may vary.

Tab stops are measured from the left margin of the text.

The document $Tabs value defines the tab stops for the document's default text paragraph style.
