# Remove horizontal space incurred by \' in tabbing

Consider the following code:

\documentclass{article}
\begin{document}
\begin{tabbing}
FOO\=\kill
FOO\>BAR\\
\>O\'BAR\\
\end{tabbing}
\end{document}


The output is

How to remove the space after "O" in the second line, moving this "O" to the right, i.e., to get

FOOBAR
OBAR


?

This question is specific to tabbing (we all know how to achieve this result in other environments, say, tabular).

30 years of tex use and first time I have ever set this parameter:-)

\documentclass{article}
\begin{document}
\setlength\tabbingsep{0pt}
\begin{tabbing}
FOO\=\kill
FOO\>BAR\\
\>O\'BAR\\
\end{tabbing}
\end{document}

• @user49915 it is fairly fully documented in the latex book (which is where I just looked) but I think I have only used the tabbing environment a couple of times, it is fairly useless really, I think. – David Carlisle Jul 10 '18 at 13:57
• @user49915 yes... – David Carlisle Jul 10 '18 at 13:59
