I have inherited a form that has a tab order, but after the last valid tab there are a couple more placed in weird places in the form. How can I delete these random and unused tabs. If I don't delete them, the tabbed browsing doesn't work right.
Somehow there are some stray tabs tied to pieces of text scattered around the document that aren't fields. So tabbing goes to those after the last field rather than to the first field on the next page of the form.
Can you send your form to LiveCycle8@gmail.com and add a description of how to re-create the problem.
I don't mean to hijack this thread, but I have a similar problem with a multi-page document, where I have read-only fields that I bypassed by re-tabbing the pages. However, when I get to the end of the page, the tab order sends the focus to the read-only fields as opposed to going to the first entry field in the next page.
Is it possible to just delete a tab stop, whether the page has been re-tabbed or not?
You will have to go into the XML tab and remove the property "traversal" for the objects in question. This is what tells the field where to go next.
I have the exact same issue I'm trying to deal with. I need to provide all the fields on a standardized form, but our company only requires part of them. I want the user to tab from required field to required field and then to go directly to the 2nd page's first required field.
I too had a few fields that at one point were added to the tab order and seem impossible to remove. At this point, I've needed to recreate the field and rename it. It seems to want to assign the tabbing even though I deleted and replaced it with a new field.
