I have created forms with several form fields in which users can enter text, and I would like
- users to be able to use the tab key to skip from one form field to the next without having to use their mouse to click on each field to enter content.
- However, I also want the form to be protected so that users can only enter content in the fields and not change anything else.
- And I would like to be able to do this without having to create a macro as I have no idea how to do this.
I may be wrong, but these goals appear to be irreconcilable. I could use the forms toolbar and protect the form for testing purposes, and this allowed me to use the tab keys to navigate from one form field to the next. However, when the form protection from the toolbar is active, it is apparently not possible to activate the form protection via the tools menu that I used to define which fields I would like users to be able to change.
On the other hand, once I protect the form using the protection options from the tools menu, the form is protected and content can be entered in the appropriate fields, but now the tab key does not assist users in navigating from one form field to the next anymore.
