A tad annoying

 

You can select the negative indent portion an type into the box the value you want - or hold down SHIFT DOWN ARROW or up arrow

This moves by 10 units

 

You can right click a Tab and choose Delete Tab

 

Tab rule has never been updated as far as I can remember

 

If you have ideas for it  you can submit them here

Maybe a more Robust option like extend the panel to show indent settings

 

Maybe double click a Tab in the area for selecting a tab to get a list of 
Tab 1 
Tab 2
+

 

And you could add tabs with the plus and insert values

Other than that you have to open an awkward floating window to manage them interactively, there's not much I'd care to see changed with Tabs. The 'negative indent' thing is just a technical perspective, a little different from most apps, but once learned is no more or less useful/appropriate/flexible than any other scheme.
