I don't think you fully understand what Elastic Tabstops (ET) does.
Indented and aligned text are possible with or without monospaced fonts.
That's the beauty of ET.

The following website gives very nice visuals and detailed overview of
what ET can and can't do.


Based on your quoted message above, could you give an example of where
you think ET will fail with a proportional font?
