Keyboard tab order between inputs - change widget order?

Hi, I’m trying out Appsmith to build a page with multiple input fields, and want the user to be able to tab between inputs using the keyboard. However the tab order doesn’t reflect the input position on the page, and seems to be following the order that the widgets show up in the Widgets list. Is that the intended behavior? Is it possible to change the order of the Widgets list, or some other way to change the keyboard tab order of inputs?

That’s great, thanks for the info Abhishek!

Hello, I am curious about doing this as well (define tab navigation order). It’s not clear to me that the linked bug is related, and in the latest release it does not seem possible to define. Is there currently a way?

Hello! We have an enhancement request for improving form widget keyboard accessibility that you can track on GitHub.
