I want to add tab stops to the cross-reference format to make my TOC a one-click solution but the format never comes out right and using the tab button in the dialog window move the cursor to the next window.

When trying to format my Cross-References I would like to add tab stops so that the format for the TOC works with the Cross Reference.  For example my format on the Reference pages is

<$chapnum>-<$paranumonly> <$paratext> <$chapnum>-<$pagenum>

With tab stops before the chapnum, between paranumonly and paratext and the next chapnum.  so the end result should look like

4-16             Digital Vertical Speed - Primary Mode................................ 4-28

Help?

On the Reference page, add a \t where ever you want a tab to be, i.e. \t<$chapnum>-<$paranumonly>\t<$paratext>\t<$chapnum>-<$pagenum>

Then ensure that the paratag format has the tab stops placed at the correct location(s).

When you re-generate the TOC, you should get the desired effect.
