The first way:

  1. From the CenoPDF menu, choose Field Manager.
  2. Click the Tab Order header in the list box to sort the fields.
  3. Select fields. You can hold Ctrl key or Shirt key to select multiple fields.
  4. Drag and drop the selected fields to the desired location.
  5. From the Edit menu, choose Set Tab Orderto commit the changes.
