cursor movement to text entry box

Jul 22, 2015

Here is the scenario

I am building text boxes in separate layers

procedure is as follows:

create text box, when user hits TAB key- the next text entry box appears in the new layer.  However the mouse does not move into that text entry field, the user has to move the mouse over to it.

Is there a way to make the cursor arrive in the new text box when user hits TAB key?

Hi Roma,

There isn't a way to force the cursor to move to that text entry box, as the slide layer has the focus first.  There was an issue fixed in Update 5, that prevented the text entry from having focus initially - which is how it should behave on the base slide layer, also when set up to be the last element on the timeline.
