I have a form with several text boxes. How do I get the tab to go from one text box to another in the order I want?

Hi Philip2950,

It's done by layering, last added or at the top. Once you've got your form built the way you want, right click > element layer order > bring to front

*do this to each form element, in the order you want them to tab

Hope this helps, thanks.

Which site and page are you working on? I am not quite sure what you are trying to do.
