    How does one indent text in a cell using Numbers on an iPad 3?

    Thanks

    Enter spaces in front of the text? There's no tab/indent formating, if that is what you are looking for.

    Other than that you have the usual left, center, right justification and top, middle bottom. You can find that under the paint brush icon, the Cells tab.

    I have a spreadsheet created using Numbers/Excel? That has the fields indented and I see no way to adjust them on the iPad.

    To get rid of the indent, try editing the cell, placing the cursor in front of the text, and tapping delete.

    Most text fields on the iPad will accept tab indent characters; but there is no way of adding them from the iPad's touch keyboard (that I know of). For instance, I can not tab in the Notes app on the iPad, but if I create a note with tabs in the Mac version and let it sync, the tabs are preserved. I can even select/copy/paste them.

    Thanks. Unfortunately it did not work. I guess I gotta clean it up on the Mac.

    Regards

    Ok. Sorry. In that case I've no idea what is causing the indents.
