Object representing a tab in a Word document. The result must be used within a call to fpar. It will only have effects in Word output.

Tabulation marks settings can be defined with fp_tabs() in paragraph settings defined with fp_par().




You can use this function in conjunction with fpar to create paragraphs consisting of differently formatted text parts. You can also use this function as an r chunk in an R Markdown document made with package officedown.
