The Subcategory field is skipped when tabbing out of the Category field on the ‘Add an interaction’ form.

CRM users may notice the Subcategory field is skipped when adding a constituent interaction, if a user selects the interaction category by tabbing to the field and using the keys on their keyboard. When you tab out of the Category field, the cursor is placed in the Expected Date field instead of the Subcategory field. If you move your mouse or use the arrows on your keyboard to select the Category field, the cursor is placed in the Subcategory field when you tab out of the Category field. 
We're currently evaluating this issue for a fix in a future patch or service pack.
