When assigning tab order to fields (or other objects), it would be amazing if we could click ANYWHERE within the field (or object) to assign a tab order to that field (or object).
Currently we have to specifically click inside that tiny little arrow that shows up, but this becomes a problem when objects are very close to one another. It requires us to move all of the objects around on our screen, just to set their tab orders.
But, if we could click ANYWHERE within our fields or objects to set the tab order, then we could leave everything intact on our screen, without being forced to reshuffle around all of our objects.
Please see the 2 screenshots below to see this problem in action.
The 1st screenshot shows you how the layout looks before going into "Set Tab Order...". The 2nd screenshot shows you how the layout looks after going into "Set Tab Order...".
In the 2nd screenshot, you can see that there is no way to set the tab order on the field without moving objects around on the layout... yet we have a gigantic field that we could potentially click on to set its tab order.
