TabWidth=30 is the default width assigned when you use NoteTab to create a
new outline document or clip library.
To see it in action in a clip library, switch to the Smilies library. Each
clip header is composed of the smiley + tab + explanation. All the
explanations line up, which of course would be time-consuming and more
difficult to do with spaces. Right-click in the clipbook combobox and open
Smilies.clb as a document. In the very first line change the 30 to 20 or 50
and save the document. Immediately you'll see the difference in the clipbook
Outline documents work the same way. You can use tabs inside the header
names to simulate a hierarchy, for example. I do just that in the
not-quite-completed Help481.otl (sorry! soon, soon).
