How can I delete tabs from the ruler?

I can’t work out how to delete tabs from the ruler in the editor. I tried double clicking but that just adds more tabs, which I can’t get rid of either. Pulling off the edge doesn’t seem to work either. Any hints please.

Clicking on them and pulling them off works for me.

You shouldn’t have to drag very far for them to “detach” and once they are no longer floating on that line, if you let go of the mouse button they should disappear. Try pulling your mouse straight down into the text area by a good inch or two, no luck?

That does work, thanks. I was trying to pull them off sideways, whereas pulling down is the trick.
