Styles set here apply to the tab body, the area beneath the tab header and underneath the layout in tab groups. When you create a tab group in a layout, you can select a format in the Format field in the Tab Group properties panel. You can specify values for the padding, border, and background of the following tab formats:

  • Standard — default format applied to all tab groups (tabs in a harness container, tabs in a section)
  • Sub — sub-tab format
  • Repeating — tabbed repeat layouts

You can also create custom tab formats that you can apply to tab groups within sections. A preview of the currently selected tab format displays to the right.
