Can I tab to the day when entering transactions

Coming from Quicken Mac 2007.
When I add a new transaction, the month in the date is highlighted. Logic tells me "TAB" would take me to the next field which should be the day. Instead it goes the the "Payee" entry box. Surprisingly, "SHIFT + TAB" takes me backwards by Year, then Day, then Month.
Is there a magic key combo that will take me forward one entry point at a time like I can do backwards?
I wish I could post a screenshot. A picture is worth a thousand words. ;-)

    It used to work that way to tab through the date field, but people complained and they changed it to the behavior you see now.

    The right/left arrow keys will still move you through the separate fields like you want.

    You can also use the +/- keys to increment the Day regardless of which field is selected in the date field. Same things with all the shortcuts like "t" for today, etc.

    @DevilDoggie92  You can also type a "/" to move between the month, day and years parts of the date field. Option-Tab also works (and Option-Shift-Tab works moving backward).
