Is there a shortcut way to access the Memo and Tag fields of transaction?

I can tab to each field when entering a transaction, however, the Memo and Tag field are excluded from the tab flow and can only be accessed by switching to a mouse. Is there a keyboard way of accessing these fields when editing or filling out a transaction?

    just a user,

    I'm using MD 2021.1 build 3034 with win 10 64b and I've checked my checking, credit cards, and investments and the tab will move to each field and doesn't exclude memo or tag. So possibly related to screen size, version, or OS.

    I can also confirm that Tab takes you round all the fields. Pressing Tab 8 times gets you to Memo, 9 times to Tag, before you finally hit Enter.

    This works in Win, Mac & Linux versions.

    Silly me, I didn’t tab far enough . . . . It loops below if you keep tabbing. Thanks for your help.
