Hi,

I imported a word document into Robohelp 2017.

The docx contains tab stops. These are interpreted by Robohelp as follows:

<span style="font-size: 9.0pt; line-height: 115%; font-family: Arial, sans-serif;">Defaultwert</span><span

     style="font-size: 10.0pt; line-height: 115%;">&#160;&#160;&#160;&#160;&#160;&#160;&#160;&#160;&#160;&#160;&#160;&#160;&#160;&#160;&#160;&#160;&#160;&#160;&#160;&#160;&#160;&#160;&#160;&#160;&#160;&#160;&#160;&#160;&#160;&#160;&#160;&#160;&#160;&#160;&#160;&#160;</span>&#160;<span

     style="font-size: 9.0pt; line-height: 115%; font-family: Arial, sans-serif;">nicht aktiv</span></p>

<p style="line-height: 1.0pt;">&#160;</p>

<p><span style="font-size: 9.0pt; line-height: 115%; font-family: Arial, sans-serif;">Konfigurierbare

Werte</span><span style="font-size: 10.0pt; line-height: 115%;">&#160;&#160;&#160;&#160;&#160;&#160;&#160;&#160;&#160;&#160;&#160;&#160;&#160;&#160;&#160;&#160;&#160;</span>&#160;<span

     style="font-size: 8.0pt; line-height: 115%; font-family: Arial, sans-serif;">aktiv oder nicht aktiv</span>

Unfortunately, this results partly in different distances.:

How can I fix or map this?

I don't think you can. Tab stops are a concept not understood by HTML Even if you manually align things, using spaces for alignment in HTML may not work well if the user resizes the window. It can give odd results.

Putting the content into a table would give better results.
