Tab in ACT 2005

How come I cannot use the "TAB" key to move through fields in ACT? Smiley Sad

Re: Tab in ACT 2005



It sounds like you have modified one of the standard layouts or created your own and forgot to include any TAB stops. Open the layout and go to View, TAB Stops. Click on Show TAB stops and then make sure all of the fields you want to have stops for are listed with a number. Go back to View, TAB stops and uncheck the Show TAB stops, save the layout and test. Should solve the problem.


You can do the same for ENTER stops.


Hope this helps
