tabbing in form fill skips on section breaks
created a 2010 word form fill using legacy form fields.
after I protect the document, tabbing behavior isn't as expected.
I have two section breaks. When tabbing within a section, the tabbing goes as expected, but when you tab after the last form fill of a section, it skips tab stops in the next section going straight to a non legacy form fill.
see attached example.
I protected it so you can see what happens, but there is no password, so unlock to work on it.

The problem is caused by your use of a content control; replace it with a formfield and all will be well. That said, it's also not apparent why you'd use Sections breaks and a two-column layout rather than a two-column table - preferably with a separate row for each item in a given column.Cheers,
