Default How to type TAB character on 8830

Please Login to Remove!

I'm sure that I've overlooked this little bit of information somewhere in all the FAQs, forum posts and documentation, but I've decided to quit wasting time and just ask.

How do I enter a TAB character from the 8830 keyboard. My old Treo used Shift-Space, but I can't come up with a combination that seems to work on the 8830. Thank you in advance.

What application are you using that requires a tab? Blackberry is text-based. There's no tab character. However, if you are just looking to format, you can create your own autotext entry, and do something like set 'tt' to be replaced by 5 spaces or something along those lines...

I use memos extensively, and use the TAB character to keep columns indented evenly. With a mono-spaced font, the spaces work just fine. Not so with a proportional font. My previous PDA (Treo) had the TAB character. Very disappointing...
