EAUI: Tab order inconsistent!
« on: February 07, 2008, 05:38:23 pm »
One a few of the dialogs, the forward [Tab] and reverse [Shift+Tab] tab orders are inconsistent!

If you go forward and go to far and then try to go back, it doesn't go where you came from!  [Specific case - most edge dialogs - tab from Name to Notes then backwards...]

This violates the "principle of least astonishment"

Consistency, Consistency, Consistency! TM

"Astonished"  (I didn't know you could do that!)
Inconsistently correct systems DON'T EXIST!
... Therefore, aim for consistency; in the expectation of achieving correctness....
