    How can you create tabs in WinEdt for LaTeX on a PDF file?

    When I write a proof, I want it to be indented in by one tab. How do I do that?

    Note: The simple press tab does not work.

    It's ugly, but you could (ab)use the quote environment for it. Also, if you use AMSMath there is probably an option to set the appearance of the proof environment.

    The amsthm class provides macros that give a lot options to customize the layout of a proof. A .pdf file describing this package is at ftp://ftp.ams.org/pub/tex/doc/amscls/amsthdoc.pdf.

    You could use a minipage preceded by an hspace.

    That's exactly what I needed!
