Since I've been diving into 3D fractals, Mandelbulber is about the only program I have some experience with. At the moment I've used version 2 more than the previous one. The switch from GTK to QT has probably something to do with programming/compatibility/cross-platform ease ... but I have to say I prefer the old GUI. To achieve a quick and easy work flow I try to switch between keys and mouse as less as possible. The TAB key to switch between input fields really helps for this method. But since there seems to be no logic in the TAB-order of many fields in the new version, I am forced to switch between keys and mouse more often than I like. This one little thing, which probably means nothing to most users, is really frustrating me.

While I do like more features (like animation), I think priority should be on a good working basic (G)UI.

Other than this minor issue .... thanks for this wonderful piece of software!

I haven't played with the sources for this one (mandelbulber) but if the QtDesigner program is used for maintaining the gui in .ui files (if not it should be) then...
this link explains how to set the order to whatever you like smiley

http://doc.qt.io/qt-5/designer-tab-order.html

load the ui file
set tab order
save ui file
recompile

done

yeah ive noticed that while working with Qt also, the tab order will be wacked out until you go in and make it what you want it to be.  probably just got overlooked until now

The default tab order is based on the order in which widgets are constructed

yeah the tab order is just the order you constructed the widgets in.  i meant overlooked as in overlooked by krzysztof, not overlooked as in something wrong with Qt
