How do I insert a tab character to line up items

Sorry if this has been asked before.... But I have a multiline form field and I want to line up some items using tabs...

But when use the tab key it moves to the next field rather than entering a tab character.... I have tried most keyboard modifiers, but can't seem to figure out how to 'tab over' a few spaces to enter an item to be lined up with item above it...

Does that make sense? Seems crazy so I'm hoping I'm just missing something obvious...

Best,

Ben

It can only be done using a script.

1. Prepare Form

2. Right click the text field

3. Properties

4. Options

5. Allow Rich Text Formatting

6. Close

7. Close Prepare Form

8. Select text in the text field to indent

9. Ctrl + E

10. More...

11. Paragraph

12. Idents [sic] - set to 36 points

13. Close

 

This will indent the text 0.5 inch. (I belive a point is 1/72 of an inch in this context). 

 

I know this is a six-year old post, but it's what came up when I Googled so I thought I would offer a solution to anyone else that comes across it during their search.
