contact and tab editing

After I edited the fields, when I press "tab", the cursor doesn't go down the list in order.  I basically jump all over the place.  Is there a way to fix it? 


My second question is for the "Seconary Contact", when I create a new secondary contact, under "Title", it became a drop down list.  Is there a way to edit the interface for the "Secondary Contact"?  Thanks.

Hello woodeasy,
You proabably just need to re-do the tab order in your layout:
- Tools > Design Layouts > Contact
- View > Tab Stops > Show Tab Stops
* Right-click on a field to enter in its tab order
* Double-click the field to remove it's current tab order
* Go to View > Tab Stops > Clear to all tab stops and start over
When done, go to View > Tab Stops > Deselect 'Show Tab Stops'


Regarding the Title field in secondary contacts, it uses the same Title field that primary contacts use, which is by default a dropdown field. To change this, you would need to remove the dropdown for the main Title field, which will also remove it for primary contacts. Unfortunately, you cannot edit the interface for secondary contacts.
