Setting dafault tab stops

Is there any way to change the default tab stops so that when I create a new RTF document they are automatically in effect.

Just create a dummy rich text with the desired tabs and duplicate this template afterwards to create new rich texts (v1.9.x will probably introduce a preference to set up a default ruler).

I’m already using 1.9.1. Using the styles it seems to be possible to set up the default ruler settings although I haven’t worked out all the details. Must check again but this didn’t seem to be documented in the manual. Again I’ll check this and report it to support.
