Say we have a tabbed table and you want to add some text in one of the content cells. No problem here.
Now say we want to add a subform with text in te content cell: troubles! It will look like this:
There is a gravitational field active on the left border of the tabbed table! It attracts all text and tables present in the subform.
See how this subform…
… looses its margins once it enters the gravitational field of the tabbed table.
Make the text margin wider! Make the table margin a million centimeters (if possible in Notes :-))! Nope, no result, the gravitational field is too powerful.
There’s one magic element that can break the spell: an invisible table cell. In your subform table, add an extra column with no borders or colors to create space, like this:
The smallest possible margin is 0,318 cm (minimum width for a cell), but it looks great in a tabbed table.
The same trick works for flat text: put your text in a table with 2 columns and invisible borders. The table uses “fit with margins” and the first column is 0,318 cm.
You probably figured this out by yourself, but this can be helpful for newbies.
