Tab order in message creation form

I find the tab order in the message creation form counterintuitive. It goes:

  1. Recipient
  2. This is an official warning.
  3. Body
  4. Message (send)
  5. Cancel

Note that the subject line isn’t in this sequence at all, which also seems weird.

Also, #2 is a little freaky to be honest, should it be so prominent? I could imagine it being outside of the default tabbing sequence: so maybe:

  1. Recipient
  2. Subject
  3. Body
  4. Message (send)
  5. Cancel
  6. This is an official warning.

(Rather similar topic to this other post on topic index order).

Thanks!

It is visually counterintuitive (cause focus jumps around in weird ways), but yes, I agree with this change. Thoughts @Design ?

Hey there, I like these suggestions. Would you mind walking me through how you are creating a message?

In my testing, I do so by clicking your name, then clicking message. The order for me (on firefox) is

  1. subject / topic title
  2. this is an official warning
  3. body
  4. Message (send)
