old stack

I opened some stacks created four or five years ago and the text field sizes seem to have shrunk slightly, cutting off text that was originally visible. I am using the same font -- the same font file in fact, copied from my old computer on which I originally wrote the stuff. Old and new are both Win...

Re: TAB behavior

This stack, when run on my computer at least, shows the way that tab in one field jumps to another field while tab in the other field inserts a tab in the text.

Re: TAB behavior

I've tried copying the two fields in question to a new stack and deleting all scripts, buttons etc. The behavior is the same: tab in one field cycles the cursor through other fields, tabbing in the other field inserts a tab into that field's text.

If I do so in the "contents" view of the inspector for that field, the tabKey inserts a tab which is transfered to the field when I press ENTER in the contents field of the inspector. why? I have a stack with two fields. ...

TAB behavior

What is the setting that causes tab in a field to move the cursor to the next field rather than inserting a tab in the field itself?
