Tab key behavior

When I use the tab key in the editor the cursor moves to the next line (Scrivener 2.0.5, running OS X 10.6). I haven’t been able to figure out how to change this behavior (i.e., insert a tab when I hit tab).

What am I missing?

You don’t have any tab points on the ruler. Show rulers (Cmd-R, I expect) will enable you to enter tab points on the ruler. If you always want them, add them in the appropriate preferences pane. That will put them in every new document you open; for previous documents, use once you’ve set your tab points up.



Much obliged…
