I would like to set tab order going from page one then to page two and then back to page one. The only way i know how to do this is to set the tab order on the left hand side in Acrobat.  Is there a way to write a jave script to allow me to tab from one page to the next and then back?  I can't figure this out.  THANKS again for any advice!

You can use the built-in tab order of form fields to achieve it. Just add transparent buttons that don't do anything on each page (or something like that) and you'll be able to tab between them.

I like the idea.  I can't figure out how to tab between them.  I am going to continue to try.  Maybe I'll figure it out before you reply.

Hi,

I would be careful of doing this if there is the possibility of users needing to use the accessibility features. As this could make it hard for them to follow the flow of the document.

Regards

Malcolm

I'm still trying to figure this out with tabbing.  I've set up a calculating form which is working very nicely.  I can tab through each page in the correct order with no issues.  Here is where I'm stuck.  I have someone go through the form about 8 lines.  When they get to the 8th line and tab, I'd like for it to tab to a section on the back page.  Once they tab through that section for about 10 lines, then I'd like for it to tab back to the front page and then finish the rest of the form.  I have no idea how to make this happen.  I tried adding a transparent button but I'm still not understanding how to make this work.  If you have a little more insight on how to set this up I would greatly appreciate it.  THANK YOU!!
