9. Select "Can Move" drop down and select horizontal, this will restrict the arrow to only move horizontally.
10. Click off of arrow and now move it to the left and you can pull the tabs.

If you want to make more of the same tab, you can take off the horizontal restrictor. Select the arrow and duplicate it as many times as you want. Move the tabs where you want them and then un-group to add the text you for each tab. Then re-group and add the horizontal restrictor.
