If you only want to press TAB once, then turn off the floating data bar and go to using the Show Data Fields on a fixed data bar.

With this turned on, you will only have to tab once to get to the first field.

this is what I was asking about initially. My settings _ARE_ on "Allow Numeric Keypad..." but I still need to tab twice. So I'll consider this a bug and I'm wondering why no one of the VW staff has confirmed this so far.


This surely is a workaround, but in my 20 years of software design and application I always found it annoying to use workarounds instead of properly designed native tools. ;-)

My settings are on Allow Numeric keypad, an it works for me everytime.

One other setting to look at, Use Floating Data bar. I have this option checked.

Hi Jeffrey,

A problem that someone has reported to me, using Xp & 2008 SP3 is that the data bar refuses any additional entries after the first one, ie you can tab the length, and tab again for angle, nothing happens.

Have you seen this problem before?

Thanks in advance
