Rearrange the object entry order in a single click

Automatically translated from English

When working on a form, it often happens, for a reason or another, that you insert new objects within a group of existing objects in your form. In that scenario, the resulting object entry order often becomes illogical, and would let the user enter information in an awkward manner. This is where you need to restore the entry order to a logic one, and it can be a tedious task…

So if you have ever stumbled upon this scenario, here is a tip to go back in one click to a logic standard order:

  1. Click the Entry Order button of the toolbar 
  2. Draw a marquee around all the objects you want to group for data entry. Then release the mouse. Voilà, the object entry order is rearranged!
