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.

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.

Tabs


Move the printhead to the position you want a tab set. Then hold down the CODE key and hit the key under where T SET is printed above the keys on the keyboard. Do this for every tab you want to set. If you want to clear a tab set, tab to the one you want to remove and hold down the CODE key and hit the key under T CLR.
