import mlreportgen.dom.*
rpt = Document('Report_Pages','pdf');
text = '\n This is a line \t\t with a space.';
title = make_paragraph(text,[],[],'12pt');
append(rpt, title);
The '\t' doen't have any effect.
Thank you for help!

The text-based functions (including legend, title, xlabel, ylabel, and zlabel) do not recognise ‘\t’. Insert spaces manually instead.

I add that using ‘\t’ with sprintf in any text-based function has never worked when I tried it. Just use spaces, as I suggested earlier.

title = make_paragraph(sprintf(text),[],[],'12pt');
Whether this will have any effect on the output is a completely different question.
