Question about the Palm Portable Keyboard

I guess this is computer related, somewhat.

Anyway, I recently bought a portable keyboard for my Palm VIIx. Everything works fine except that the tab key doesn't work when I'm typing. So I exchanged the keyboard for another one at Circuit City today (long wait and all)... and find that the tab key still doesn't work.

If anyone has used the Palm Portable Keyboards, do you know if the tab key actually works?



This 2nd keyboard I just got today is worse than the first one... the space bar doesn't work well; I have to hit it in the middle for it to work.

Time for yet another exchange.

Think you have to hit shift-tab (or maybe control-tab, or alt-tab) in order for the tab feature to work. Don't ask me why.

Anyway, try that and see if it works. BTW, make sure you're not using the Afterburner hack.

Cool. Just tried it. Alt + Tab works like Tab. That's weird.

Now I'll have to exchange it again though, since the space bar is really screwed up. I wish I asked the question here today before I gave up the first keyboard, which I now know worked fine.

Sucks.
