Tab order feature
The field view is entirely too small to manually edit tab order. This should either be a separate pane or perhaps a pop-out window. I easily have over 100 fields on one page and it's impossible to order them as I need to (by column, within a section or rows of fields). Default tab ordering structures (By Row, By Column) are not useful here. Need more flexibility to set tab order manually.
I have forwarded your request to engineering. It will be picked up after prioritization. We will contact you if we need some more information on this.
Thank you for your patience

Setting the tab order in Acrobat DC is extremely tedious. It used to be easier in previous versions where you could use Ctrl+click and select the order. Why making the process more cumbersome and less user friendly in new versions?

A workaround is, if you still have an Acrobat 8 or older around, open the form and set the tab order in that application.

This seriously needs to be implemented. Setting tab order by manually dragging and dropping field names is entirely too cumbersome on large forms. There is way too much brainpower being exerted just to figure out tab order, as opposed to a simple "Click the Order" mechanism that existed previously.

In Acrobat 9 and higher, the "set tab order" function is very cumbersome as opposed to the previous method of just clicking the field in the order that I want to set the tabs.
I have a form that has 210 fields and dragging them in a list is very tedious and in some cases, the order changes randomly and I have to start over.
