When I try to enter data on my form, and use the tab key to move between fields, it is not always consistent as to which field it moves to. I have checked the "Fields" area and they are all in order but when I try to move within the form once published, it sometimes skips fields.
Has anyone come across this issue?
I am using Adobe Acrobat Pro DC.
What kind of fields is it skipping? Are those fields set as read-only, by any chance?
They are all exactly the same.
What type of fields are they?
Can you share the file with us (via Dropbox, Google Drive, Adobe Cloud, etc.)?
How do I do that privately?
I just sent you the link in a private message.
Was this resolved? I'm having a similar issue with multiple PDFs. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
I think your issue can be resolved with Reading Order and Editing Document Structure:

Thank you for the answer! I had created a document with several different radio group checkboxes. The tab order was inconsistent with the group controls. Sometimes it would tab to the next option in the group, sometimes it would skip it only to move to it from another group. I am 100% certain that the tab order is correct in the document. Using the above steps fixed it and now is working as expected:
