TabStop in Authorware

TabStop in Authorware

I'm working in Authorware 7.02. For accessibility reasons I need to be able to tab between navigation buttons to change focus and eventually select one. I think that "TabStop" in the windows controls is the solution. I just can't figure out where to apply the control.
Do I drop a knowledge object in at the beginning?
Near the buttons decision Icon?
If not TabStop, what?

RE: TabStop in Authorware

Never mind.
I figured it out.
There is a really slick function for doing this in the FTP show me example in version 6 (or you can find it posted elsewhere).
I used two off-screen buttons (tab and Ctl+tab) with a MoveCursor calculation to change focus. It's not the same as TabStop, but it works.
