You can insert a ruler in your text, add your tab stops to it, select the
ruler as a singleton (with Alt-click) and run the menu command Text->Make
default ruler. After that you can erase the ruler; tab stops are still
working. But, why don't you just use rulers? They may be hidden and with
them you can easily change your layout.

It's the same thing for me. I suppose it's still a work in progress ;-).
