I am relatively new in acrobat and my first project is building a from with over 400 fields. In my layout there are multiple groups of fields, which belong together. Now the tab order is all over the place and the automatic order in columns or rows doesn’t work for me.
Is there a better option to sort the tab order then to drag and drop every single field in the list?
I am looking for something like sort the order by rows, but only the selected fields so I can order an other group by columns and the order the group order.
Or just drag and drop multiple fields in the order list or even just tipping in the new order number for each field.
You can select multiple fields in the Fields List and drag them all together to change their tab order at the same time, but BEWARE, there's a bug that causes the internal order of that group to reverse when you do that...
So if you had:
and you selected Text2-Text4 and dragged them above Text1 the order will look like this:
which seems correct, but if then save the file, close it and then re-open it you'll see that it's actually this:
That never worked, but I discovered why. You have to select the filds in the tab order list. Till now I selected the fields per box select in the form. When I do it like this, only one field goes to the new position. Is that on purpose so, or is that a bug, too?
