Would like to see the ability to use the 'TAB' key to jump from one field to another. Will increase productivity dramatically and is a universal standard for so many programs and forms. Surprised it can not be used in Store Manager

No, I actually mean using the Tab key on keyboard to jump from one field to another (Like from Manage Stock to Qty to Minimum Qty, etc)

Thanks

Hm... but Tab button is used for switching among of elements of windows.
You can use up-down arrows for this purpose.

See video- http://screencast.com/t/Ogc7Q1NW
Tabs labels switch by Tab button
moving down\up by arrows

I'm sorry that Zhen wrote that it will work. Using 'TAB' to move forward through form elements is a decades old standard. It is frustrating and time consuming to keep hitting Tab and finding that the focus either does nothing, or jumps radically out of the form element.

It REALLY would be a huge time saver if standard navigation was implemented.

i.e. Tab moves forward one form element at a time (within the current form), at last element, it moves to the next page element -- such as the [Confirm] or [Cancel] buttons.

Being able to use the arrows is a helpful workaround, but not a solution IMO.

Please do not mark this as Completed because the original requester is willing to utilized a workaround. The requested functionality does not exist -- therefore it is not Completed.
