Hello! I'm sure this question has been answered before, but despite searching high and low, I can't seem to locate a suitable answer.  

All I'm looking to do is tab between the values/numbers in the Develop Module.  Right now when I have a value selected (ie Temp) and hit tab, it tabs to the slider of the next setting (in this example, it would go to the slider for Tint).  But I'd rather just tab between each number value to help speed up my workflow.  


Is this possible?  
Please, thank you, and everything inbetween!  
Be well, 

-Rob

As it turns out, my MacBook had this working correctly but my iMac didn't.  It appears as though tabbing between values in the Develop Module is not inherently possible in Lightroom.  The workaround here (I knew I did it somehow!) was to go to System Preferences > Keyboard > Shortcuts, and then at the bottom of the window, deselecting the "use keyboard navigation to move focus between controls" checkbox. That worked immediately — no need to restart Lightroom. Whew.

What you show is definitely the desired effect.  Right now when I tab between values, this is what it does (note the blue highlight on the slider arrow, indicating the value isn't selected, but rather, the slider is).

The Tab key is doing Exactly what it is intended to do and what it was designed to do.

 

Try the Arrow keys or the +/- keys.

Sorry, but the arrow keys or the +/- keys don't work to flip between the numbers, and as such, it's not working the way I'd like it to.  @Abambo's gif is the desired result.  This has to be a setting I can change somewhere, I'd imagine.  But I'm stumped on where to look or how to adjust.
