How to Customize Tab Order for a Layer

Hi,

I'm developing an eLearning piece in Storyline 3 and need to customize the tab order for a new layer.  When I go to Tab Order and remove/add shapes, the tab order I create for the new layer seems to override the tab order I had for the base layer.  Basically, the base layer and the new layer become identical in their tab orders.

How do I create a tab order for my new slide layer that's different from the base layer?

Hello, Andrea!

All objects for the slide will appear in the Tab Order window, including objects from layers. The objects on layers should be at the top of the Tab Order list.

If that setup isn't working well for you, can you tell me more about what you're trying to do? There might be another way to go about it!

Hi Alyssa,

Thanks for looking into this.  I want to enable someone who progresses through my module using a keyboard to only tab over the items on the active layer.  So if we're on the main slide layer, they should only be accessing items on that layer.  And if they're on an additional slide layer, they should only be able to tab over the items I've listed as 'tabable' on that layer.

I don't want the tabable items to be identical from layer to layer.
