Some times it is the sme button, you may have to hit anouther key such as code and then that button does it say tab clear anywhere, these are what is called dual function keys.

MARGINS: Left margin space or tab to where you want margin set and depress the mar L key. Sometimes the key has to be depressed as you hit the code key. If you want to move carrige to the left, go to margin hit margin release and bk space to where you want. Same with the right margin only use th R margin key. Code key usually keys have second message are in green, yellow or red. Use code key with the small print on the key to activate that function.... Good luck

SOURCE: My set margins and tabs clear from memory when I

I was able to reach someone at Brother. He said that the typewriter does not store the margins and tabs. Seems unusual to me, but I guess I will have to take his word for it unless someone out there knows something different.

SOURCE: how to clear and set margins and tabs please on

You must hit the carriage return button to find the current position of the left margin, then hit the mar release button and use the backspace key to move the carriage to the new position that you want the margin to be set at, then hit the left margin key to set it. Then move the carriage to the right to find the right mar, hit the mar release key and use the spacebar to move the right mar to the new position you want, then hit thr right mar kay to set it.

How can I set a right hand tab


I assume you are talking about Flush Right Tabulation.

To set a flush right tab:
(1) Position the carrier (or cursor) at the point where you want a flush right tab to be set.
(2) Hold down the Tab set/clear key and press the 2 key.

To clear a flush right tab:
(1) Press the Tab/back tab key to move the carrier (or cursor) to the flush right tab position.
(2) Hold down the Code key and press the Tab set/clear key.

To use a flush right tab:
(1) Press the Tab/back tab key to move the carrier (or cursor) to the flush right tab position.
(2) Type the text. Characters will appear on the display as they are typed. Corrections can be made on the display before the text is printed.
(3) Press the Print key. The text is printed aligned with the flush right tab position.

To clear margins, you have to hit the return button to find the left margin, then hit margin release and back space to move the margin left or spacebar to move to the right, then hit left margin button to set the new position. Right margin now. Hold spacebar down and find right margin position, hit margin rease and either spacebar to the right or backspace to the left to the new margin position then hit right margin button to set the new position. Tabs now. hit the tab key, when it goes to the first set tab, hit the tab clear key, then hit the tab key again, then tab clear again etc.
