    Hi Andrew,

    Thanks for reaching out! There is an "Increase Indent" feature that current exists in our Rich Text editor called "Increase Indent" which acts as a tab insert.

    I have attached a screenshot below showing the area.



    Does that feature work for what you're looking for?

    Best,

    Hi Decoteau – This indents the whole line.  An example probably helps:

     

    •           An item             // A comment

    •           Another             // Another comment

    •           A third item       // A third comment

     

    Or in Word with hidden characters showing:

     

    Interestingly, copying and pasting from Word to Jama replaces tabs with spaces.

     

    Using tabs, the comments above can be nicely lined up without having to type in spaces (which only works well for monospaced fonts)

    An alternative would be to have a table with no visible borders but this would be tedious.

     

    Thanks

    Hi Andrew,

    Thank you for the example. 
    Though MS Word allowed you to copy that formatting over, our Rich Text Editor doesn't support the tab feature in this way.

    Please let me know if you have any further questions. 

    Best,
