Transform tab order

Recommended Posts

This is a minor request. Can you change the tab order in the Transform panel? In Beta 1.5.5 B2, tab order is X, W, Y, H. The majority of the time when using Transform, I (and I assume others) typically adjust both the X and Y, or H and W in combination. It would be convenient if I could tab directly from X to Y, or from H to W. Simply put, can you change the tab order to be X, Y, W, H, R, S?

 

Thanks for your consideration. And thanks a million for such a fantastic product!

I think the X and Y, and the W and H are meant to be two different groups. They're not reading from left to right, but from up to down. R (rotate) and S (skew) are separate from each other. I think that is why there is a space in between the other two groups. So technically, there are four sections there.

Hi Jeff,

I've just placed an object on my page using 1.5.5 B2 and selected the X field and pressed tab and found the tabbing order to be correct and as you are expecting!

Thanks for the reply. After more investigation, I have a bit more information. The Transform panel seems to behave differently when in Separated Mode. I notice when not in Separated Mode - default mode, the tab order is as you say, but when in Separated Mode, it behaves the way I describe (X, W, Y, H), at least for me.

Oops. It looks like I didn't understand the topic. I was a little lost, because by tab, I thought you meant panel. Here I go being so literal again.

I just checked 1.6 Beta 12 and it still has the previously described behavior. Unless you meant it has been fixed in the next beta version (13)?

No, we tested and understood the tab order in Separated Mode to now be X, W, Y, H, R, S. Perhaps we need to retest

Yes, that is what they are. The request was for them to be in this order: X, Y, W, H, R, S. So, X flows to Y and W flows to H on tab.

Hi Jeff,

 

It looks like the fix was accidentally tested in Photo and not Designer. The bug has been reopened so the fix can be made for Designer. Sorry for the confusion.

Thanks so much. These little details, while little, add up. Speaking of little details, another item for Separated mode is "cmd ~" doesn't switch between open windows as it should.
