Setting the tab order of the fields

The tab order you establish for a PDF form determines the order in which fields are selected as a viewer of the form presses the Tab key. Next, you’ll set the tab order for the fields on the page.

  1. From the Object menu, choose Interactive > Set Tab Order.
  2. In the Tab Order dialog box, click Last Name (the name of the text field you created that holds the family name of the person filling out the form), and then click Move Up until it appears below First Name near the top of the list. Use the Move Up and Move Down buttons or drag field names up or down to rearrange them so that they match the order on the page. Click OK to close the dialog box.
  3. Choose File > Save.
