Why does DocFactory not display "tables" created using tab stops?

Why does DocFactory not display "tables" created using tab stops?

Problem:

Why does DocFactory not display "tables" created using tab stops?

Resolution:

Problem Description:

Enter text separated by tabs in the description.

Example: Unique ID Description 1 Test 2 Test2 3 Test3 Generate a Word document using DocFactory. Select the text in the Word document and choose Table -> Convert -> Text to Table; Separate Text At Tab. The table is not created correctly; the rows are created but the columns aren"t.

Additional Information:

With the introduction of Rich Text in CaliberRM 6.0, we began converting tabs to nonbreaking spaces because there is no tab character in HTML. Therefore when you output the description to Word via Document Factory and then try to convert to a table, based on tab spacing, there is no Tab to convert.

Resolution:

A workaround is to do a find and replace (special) in Word. You will need to place 9 nonbreaking spaces in the find and then the Tab Character in the replace.

Another option is to create the table in the description itself.
