Word 2010 - Content Controls - Tab between controls RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I'm using word 2010, when I create a document with content controls and then protect the document, I can enter data in to the controls, however I cannot tab between the controls.

    Does anyone know how to use the content controls and be able to tab between the fields?

    Kind regards

    Si

    You can use the Down/Up arrows on your keyboard to move between content controls in a protected document. (But note that content controls are intended for unprotected documents.)

  • You can GROUP them, then your tab should work without protecting the document.
