Fix how the tabbed interface behaves when switching to design view
When using the tabbed interface, if you switch a form out of Form view to Design view, the interface changes to the next tab in the sequence. You have to manually re-select the tab you were working on each time, which is really annoying. This bug affects all versions that support the tabbed interface, from what I have observed.
With the latest version of Access, we are not able to reproduce the issue you are describing.
If you still experience problems with the tabbed interface please provide information about the version you are using, and steps to reproduce.
Even in form view, I find that I need to close all other forms if I want to watch the data change in the application window as I step through code in another window.
