tabs in smartforms


I know that this thread is already closed here: , but maybe you can give me a hand in this matter. I am having the same problem but I am recently getting involved in this smartform thing so I couldn't understand the whole solution: I have to write the document's footer with some special layout. I cannot show this in this text box, but I will do my best. I have to do something like this (each '\ t' means that the following text should be written in the next tab. Each '\ n' means the end of the line):

Address \ t Telephone \ t Mail \ n

35th First Av. \ t Home: XXX - XXX XXXX \ t username(at) \ n

Santiago \ t Mobile: YYY - YYY YYYY \ n

Chile \ n

This data is filled dinamically depending on some input data. But for now we can just hard-coded it.

To achieve this I created a new Paragraph in the SmartStyles Tcode. Then I set the Alignment as Left-aligned (Indents and Spacing tab). Then I click on Tabs tab and I set the 3 first elements as (the three of them are defined the same way): Position 10 - Unit CM - Alignment Left-aligned.

The thing is now I don't know how to used this in the footer. Where should I write this data I showed you before in the footer with the layout I set.

Can you help me with that?

In advance, thanks a lot.

    Don't you want to use a table (without borders) to align your texts on several lines instead? You'll achieve it with a node of type "template".
