Subject Re: Form layout messed up when live; ok in design mode
Date Sat, 23 Jun 2012 19:13:58 GMT
You don't say how you saved the form design, but you must save twice.  
Click the save icon (floppy disk) in the form window and then click the 
save icon in the main window if it is not grayed out.  If you don't do 
the latter, the form changes may not have been saved and the next time 
you open it, you get the old version.  I make it a habit to do both 
saves whenever either save icon is not grayed out.
Hope this helps.

 After saving the form, when I switch out of design mode or simply open the form fresh, the
placement of the controls is not what it was when I saved it.  If I dismiss the "live" form
and then right click on the form from the main database window and choose edit, the controls
are where they belong.
