All,


I just had a reader write to me and express problems with the tabbing in the project--everything looked good in Xcode, but the tabbing started with the text field and would not tab into buttons under any circumstances.


If this is the case, it is because you don't have full keyboard access turned on, which you can do through System Preferences -> Keybard and Mouse -> Keyboard Shortcuts -> CHECK the box at the bottom for full keyboard access.


So what if users of your application don't have full access turned on? It doesn't matter and they can use their mouse...but if they do have it turned on, then you've planned ahead and set the tabbing outlets like should be expected of any nice Cocoa application.
