[bksvol-discuss] Re: Tab Characters in the Table of Contents

Hi Mayrie!!

That's good advice.

I'm just thinking of things that I might encounter in the future that these discussions get me thinking about.

Hi Debby,

If you're certain that your book won't have tables, then you can pretty
safely do a global replace of tabs with spaces.  If there are tables though,
that replacement might cause a problem.  When proofreading straight fiction,
I don't worry about doing that replacement and causing any harm.  However,
with nonfiction, I worry more, and might wait to do that replacement until
I've read the book.

Just what I do.

Hi Monica and everyone!

Thanks for the tab command.

When stripping out tabs, should I take each one individually or can I do a
Replace All command?  I would hate to wreck anything that was meant to stay
as it was.
