I am still not sure how exactly elastic tab stops work.
I put standard tabs (#9) in each line and the editor
aligns these tabs for adjacent lines?
What if an empty line is between such lines?
What if I want to start a new 'table' which is not
related to preceeding or following lines?

In this example (where 'Param1' should align with 'Param2')
---------------------------------------------
if ProcedureA(FunctionA(Param1,
                         Param2),
               true,
               false,
               false,
               Shift=[ssAlt],
               ErrorCode) then
    ShowMessage('ERROR')
---------------------------------------------
I would put tabs before 'ProcedureA', 'FunctionA', 'Param1', 'Param2', 'true', 'false', etc. and 'ShowMessage'
and 2 extra tabs on the start of the second line (with 'Param2'), 1 extra tab for the following lines?

I found an interesting discussion discussion about elastic tabstops with some cons here:
