If I click in the middle of a table cell or in an empty paragraph, OpenOffice.org inserts tabs in front of the cursor position. How do I stop this?

This is caused by a setting in the OpenOffice.org interface called 'Direct Cursor'. To change this behavior:

  1. From the main menu bar, select Tools -> Options.
  2. In the dialog that appears, select OpenOffice.org Writer - Formatting Aids.
  3. Change the 'Insert' value to 'Left Paragraph Margin' (it was set to 'Tabs').
  4. Click on OK.
