Setting Tab Stop Order in Design Layout

I have been unable to set all the tab stops that I want on the Group Info page.  I set tab stops 1-5 and they work fine, however, it will then skip to tab stop 8.  Tab stop 8-12 will work, then skips to 16 etc.  I have gone to each field and the set index feature is set to the correct tab stop number, but the red tab stop does not appear.

 

Thank you.

Sorry Jenna, not sure to understand. Your tab stops work or not?
Red boxes with the order of the tab stop appear only when you design the order...

Some of the tab stops work and some don't.  I set the tab stops using the set index tool in design layout.  However, not all are being recognized.

Re: Setting Tab Stop Order in Design Layout

My "tab" or "enter" keys don't move me from one field to another. I tried using the "show tabs" and "show entr stops' but nothing works. I have the new ACT 11 Premium. In the old ACT one could see the tab and enter stops with a red dot or numbers and it was very east to set it up. No longer. Any help?

What actually happens?

 

Does Enter do anything?

Does Tab do anything?

Do they stay in the same field or just not jump to the field you want?

How about in the demo database with the demo layout?

Demo database seems to work somewhat. It is sluggish but the stops move: Tab moves it one ata time and "enter" moves it from a point to another point. But, my database doesn't allow me to set up tab-stop or enter-stop points. I think I am following the procedure correctly. Thanks.

What do you mean by "doesn't allow me to set up..."?

 

What procedure are you trying to follow?
