Tab Order in Adobe LiveCycle 8.0 Forgets the order after MANUALLY setting
Posted on 2010-08-12
I have wanted to send Adobe a Slap-O-Gram now for the past week! I have created a form from a scanned document. After struggling with the merging of two PDFs (don't ask) finally I ended up with a form with fields, THEN the tab order was all over the place. Not even logical. Even know I had created the text boxes in logical order I think it was using a random number generator to figure where to put the cursor next.
I did a View > Tab order and Manually selected over 800 fields. This seamed simple. I saved the document BEFORE and AFTER selecting View > Tab Order to go back to a standard editing view. I then opened the doc in Acrobat 8 and the tab order jumped around. I took a break and had a Marboro moment. Then DID IT ALL AGAIN! When I opened LiveCycle with file again the tabs showed differently than saved. In fact the numbers were somewhat in order, but that didnt matter because there was NO WAY to just correct the issues, but had to do it all click by click again. Same result. I am now out of ideas, patience, and nicotine. PLEASE HELP!
