  • Navigate between fields on the form using the TAB key on your keyboard to move to the next field, or Shift+TAB to move back to the previous field.
  • When moving to a multiple line field, note that if the entire area is still highlighted when you begin typing, any content that already existed in the field will be erased once you start typing again; for best results, click within the field to get the insertion point and then start typing or editing your previous entry.
