You can set automatic tabbing (AutoTAB) to have the cursor move between input fields automatically. This function is useful when you are entering a large amount of data and you do not want to press the TAB key to move from field to field.


AutoTAB only works at the end of an input field. For example, if the Material field can hold 12 characters, but the material number you enter is only 7 characters long, you must still press the TAB key to move to the next input field.


To turn automatic tabbing on or off:

  1. In the standard toolbar, choose the layout menu icon This graphic is explained in the accompanying textOptions.... → Cursor.
  2. To enable AutoTAB, select Automatic TAB at Field End. To disable AutoTAB, deselect this option.
  3. Choose OK to confirm your choice, or Cancel to reset the AutoTAB option to the previous setting.
