I'm looking for ideas on the best template to use for Tabs. I normally use word, but it is tough to edit or make corrections as everything shifts out of place when you delete or add. Is there a better way?
are you using a monospaced font?
Use the font 'courier'
draw up your tab lines and marvel as everything now is equal spaced and easy to deal with.

Or use a freeware tabbing program called tuxguitar or powertab to make tabs.

Hope this helps.
There's a good chance that what I've written above is useless and if you take any of the advice it's your own fault.
