Sorry about the "How" post...

I have TCS2 and link FM docs in RH.

I have several examples of programming code that have tabulated indentations in the FrameMaker documents I have inherited.

But when I convert to RoboHelp, the tab stop is only recognized by a single space.

What would be the best way to deal with this? There are so many examples, and sometimes there can be multiple levels.

Remember, all these manuals have already been written in Framemaker, so the less I have to manipulate these samples, the better!
