Oform to pdf export: field sequence is unordered

Dear folks,

after saving an .oform file as PDF the sequence of fields to hop with TAB-key is not ordered any more.

It starts from top left to bottom right, but after a few fields the cursor position is hopping around.

In the .oform file the cursors goes from top left to buttom right all through the form, even multi page forms. I would like to see the same behaviour in PDF.

Any advice, which would really be appreciated?

Thank you all!


Hello @it-verwaltung

I have tried to reproduce the issue but wasn’t able to do it. Could you share some more information on the issue:

  • What ONLYOFFICE app are you using?
  • What is the version of this app?
  • Can you share example files (.oform and .pdf) so we can check this scenario out? Or maybe record a video with demonstration of the issue?

Hi Constantine,

thank you for your effort and time.

We use Onlyoffice 7.5.4 in Nextcloud 24.0.5.
Here you will find our files:

Try to fill out the pdf form with TAB key to go from input field to input field… You will get the picture :wink:

Thank you very much…

Kind regards


I am very sorry for the late reply.

Could you double check the version of ONLYOFFICE Docs? From the editors interface I can see version 7.2.1. If it so, then consider updating to the actual version 7.2.2.
As for the issue itself - we are checking the situation.

Hi Constantine,

sorry, i was wrong regarding onlyoffice version. We had 7.2.1 and i just updated to 7.2.2. No change, same issue…

We are analyzing this issue. I will keep you posted about any results we get.
