Controlling order of text input prompts

#1

I added a text input design element between two existing elements. Apparently the tab key seems to place the cursor in the order in which the design elements were created, not necessarily the order in which those elements appear on the screen. Is there any way to control the order in which the user is prompted to enter data?

Hi @gershon.ari,

My guess is no, there’s no way to manually define the order. I tried playing around with it and it has nothing to do with the id of the element - looks to be purely the order they were created.

A workaround might be to go to each element in the order you want, and click the “Duplicate” button each time, to re-create the elements in your preferred order. You’d then have to go back and rename them to their original ids (but first deleting the original element with that id).

If this doesn’t work for you, I suggest submitting a feature request by emailing support@code.org.
