First post and newbie PP user running PP CC v12.0. . I have thoroughly searched these discussions for any information on how to use tab stops in the new Essential Graphics routine for text and I can't find anything. Ditto from the Adobe Support pages. As it is, I can't even figure out how to USE the tab width tool, and what I'm trying to do is set left, center, and right justified tabs for credits at the end of a video. Stops used to work in the old Titler panel so I'm sure they're as useful if not more in the new routine. Any help will be greatly appreciated.
I'll keep my fingers crossed, Neil. :=)
Tab Width is what we have for Graphics now, which you just make wider or narrow by changing the value in the EGP. The old titler is still there by File > New > Legacy Title or by opening a legacy title (prtl) in a project if you prefer their tab stops.
The way to get a multi column roll layout is to make three text layers within one Graphic - one flush left, one centered, one flush right. Then use align/distribute controls or just manually space them by eye. Then make the whole roll a Graphic.
If you have an accessible share folder, I have a royalty-free two-column example (with intro, pinning and various layer types) that I made myself that might help you get started. The forum will not let me attach a .mogrt file.
Thanks for the post, James!
I second that emotion, James, thank you and...DUH, why didn't *I* think to use three different graphic text objects for the columns?! it was the old way with the "drag the tab stops" that threw me but NOW I have the answer and I can't thank you enough.
Can I have that "royalty-free two-column example (with intro, pinning and various layer types)"?
I'm having the same issue, and would be awesome if I can solve this thing.
Thanks in advance!!! 🙂
Sure thing, but I'll need a CC Files or dropbox location or something like that, because this fourm will only let me attach images. The sample credit mogrt is 38 MB because of the thumbnail preview video it contains. The roll itself is small in size and shoudl perform pretty well.

Where? How? It's December 2020 and this isn't any more self-evident than it was in 2018.
WAS DRIVING ME CARAZAY!!! Thanks! Tab stops has an onscreen ruler to use. Pretty slick actually ...
