Cannot set tab order


Level 2

I have a form that contains several subforms and fragments within the subforms.

I am unable to change the tab order in the file to correspond to the hierarchy I've established (unless LiveCycle has changed my hierarchy again).

I will select the field to edit the tab order and type the new tab order number. The field moves to that position, but only for a moment. Then it moves down to the end of the tab order for the page.

Is there some kind of bug? Or is there some other way to set tab order within a subform, and then from subform to subform.

This is not a dynamic form - just static. I've also set the target version of Reader to be 9.0.

Hi Cindy,

Could you post your form? I haven't worked much with fragments, but to set the tab order I've always clicked View >> Tab Order. Then to start numbering, Shift + Click the first field in the order and then click each field in the order you want.

I sure will post it when I have it totally figured out.

I got some help, but the solution is not quite there, yet, and I have yet another priority...

Hope to get it out to you soon!
