Tap the Data Entry tab to set controls for entering data on forms. By default, the Auto edit next available fields option is set to on (i.e., slider is to the right). When this option is on, the next available field for data entry is automatically selected when working in a form. Two further sub-options allow further customization: 1) Jump to empty fields only, if on, will skip any field that has data entered and only select empty fields, and 2) Looping through empty fields, if on, will continue to cycle through empty fields.
When the Auto edit next available fields option is off (i.e., slider is to the left), automatic editing of next available field is disabled on the forms. Each field will need to be selected for data entry. The other sub-options also become unavailable. Tap on an options slider button to turn it on or off.
