Hi @ all,

i would like to insert a text from word/notepad++/etc.

When i try to insert a text, its destroying the tabs

This:
Mytext goodTab
Mytext2 verygoodTab
Yours stillGood

becomes to:
Mytext goodTab
Mytext2 verygoodTab
Yours stillGood

Is there a good way to solve that problem?

Thank you very much.

Sure: use a typeface without proportional spacing, like Courier. Since all the characters are the same width, the tabs will be consistent.... but since there will be no proportional spacing, the width between characters will look odd.

You MIGHT be able to turn off proportional spacing for any font, but I've never had to use it. You can double-check in AE Help.
