Can I stop Access 2010 from auto-ordering my tab order?

I'm working on a form that has several controls in a layout grid. I've set the tab order to be what I want (which is different from the auto order). But as soon as I add a new control, it runs an auto order and reorders all of the tabs in the layout grid.

Can I turn this behaviour off?

I don't use the Layout mode, but you might try holding down the Ctrl, Shift or Alt key when  you add the new control. These hotkey combos sometimes override the default processes.

Regrettably, that doesn't work.
