how to tab out of a text field ?

Post

I'll agree right off this appears to be a silly subject, However it's so innocuous I can't find an answer (for obvious reasons searching is getting me nowhere). The answer may lie in How to turn off the tab character/action.

I have text fields and work mostly on a MacBook. In entering text, Return starts a new line. This is useful. So I want to be able to use the TAB key to leave the field and move to the next one.  Right now, if I hit TAB I get a Tab space. There *has* to be a way to make this work (otherwise what use is the tab order half the time) and it's driving me crazy that i can't find it!

thank you all of you good and helpful people.
