How can you easily align the decimal points in that column of numbers in your table? No problem.

Just select the whole column (choose the Type tool and click over the top of the column when you see the bold down-arrow cursor), open the Tabs palette (Window > Tabs), select the Decimal Tab Stop in the palette, and click in the palette’s ruler where you want the decimals to be aligned.

The cool thing is that this works without you typing a tab character into each cell!
