Description pfreeman99 2013-01-26 00:59:55 UTC
When assigning tab order to objects in a Writer Form, if the objects have the same name, the tab order doesn't work.

i.e. if you copy and paste a bunch of text boxes, they will all have the same name, and the tab order is ignored.  If you go back in and rename them all to be unique, the tab order works again.
