I have a Clear button at the top of my form and about 14 buttons at the bottom of the first page that will print various pages from the pdf. Is there a way to exclude these buttons from the tab order so the user does not tab to them and press the Enter button by accident to activate the buttons, like the Clear button or print pages they did not intend to.

Thanks!

A print command will always open the Print dialog, so they can just cancel it out of it if they click it accidentally. If you want you can add a confirmation before clearing the fields if they accidentally click the Clear Form button.

No, active fields (and links) can be tabbed to.
