The tab order is set for every page. Looks great!
However - when I test in either the Preview PDF or by opening in Reader, tabs work for a while, then one will skip to a later page, follow ok, then skip to somewhere else, even missing some text fields altogether.
Also, some of the footer objects are tabbed and highlighted. If the user isn't paying attention and just tabbing along and typing in, the footer will actually be deleted!
I have read a little about the Traversal in xml page, but is that all there is to fixing this?
The form isn't particularly long, but about half of 25 of these sections with multiple tabs are acting up.
Any ideas please?
I find custom tab orders a pain and tend to leave the tab order to automatic.
There are a couple of things to bear in mind with tabbing set to automatic:
There is an example here: http://assure.ly/gBUUXB.
So I would recommend automatic tabbing; alighed objects; and grouping objects for particular sequences.
In relation to the footer, try using static text objects instead of textfield objects. If you need textfield objects then set it to "Calculated - read only" in the Object > Value palette.
