I have an issue with the TAB key on Paper. Any ideas?

New member | Level 2

I Have trouble with the TAB key. When I use it, it always moves the whole line. I want to write a word, tab forward, and the type another. But the first word moves forward too, even if the marker is after that word. 

No such problems in another applications. 
How can I solve this?

Hi there as far as  I know the tab key indents a paragraph, and doesn't work like a standard text application where it would make tabs...

My only workaround would be to use a table, which would give you the tabulated columns that a normal tab gives.
