Header and footer: insert alignment tabs for alignment

After we insert multiple contents in the header and footer area, we may choose to use the space bar to adjust the position of a certain text. Today we are going to show you how to use the Insert Alignment Tab feature to align text quickly.

Place the mouse cursor in front of the content to be adjusted, and click the Insert Alignment Tab button in the Header/Footer tab. In the popup dialog box, we can set Alignment and Leader.

In the following video, we will show you the effects of center margin and center indent.
