Hi Sleepless in Seattle,

It depends on where you set it from. If you do it from the
Document menu on the main menu, then it only sets it for the
currently focused document as it does with any of the options in
that dialog. (Document | Properties.) The settings in it will
override the settings in Options under the Document tab.
From Help: Options | Document
The options you set on this tab define the default document
properties that will apply to all newly opened documents and
those that have the Default option checked. You can define word
wrap, automatic indentation, tabulator width, font name and size,
Dos ASCII: This setting is only available in the Document
Properties dialog box.

Great, you are looking. ;)

Yes sir, or NoteTab Light. I believe it is an input control
thing causing the difference between Pro and Std/Light.

It means that Jody feel asleep at the wheel one dark-thirty in
the AM. ;) What I am referring to is when I mentioned "real
time" I had said that I thought you had to open a new document
and paste the data in. Dummie me was not using the individual
Document Properties overriding the global settings in Options. It
was a few months back when I was playing with it. Anyway, if you
go to Document | Properties from the main menu and change the tab
width you will see it change right away, in "real time" like word
wrapping to a specified column in NoteTab Pro. Std/Light on the
other hand does not wrap in real time when column wrap is set and
one has to use the Update column wrap to have the text wrap at
the specified column.
I hope that helped!
