I found this under the help for "Document Properties:"
Tab Size: Text Tab size. You can set multiple tab sizes in
NoteTab Std by separating each value with a semi-colon (;).
Values must be ordered in increasing sizes and represent the
distance from the left margin.
Tab Units (only available in NoteTab Light/Std): Defines units
used for tab size.
Does that mean that I can't set my own tab stops in NTP, but
will have to run NT Standard in addition to running NTP?
And what does it mean that the new tab setting is not in "real
time" on the open document?

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.

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!
