    Design Issues

    So I am trying to resize the individual text boxes in the form "layout view". I want to resize these boxes one at a time but for some reason when I click and drag the boxes in an attempt to resize,ends up changing the size of all boxes in the column. In the image I attached, you'll see that I am trying to adjust only the size of the box titled "full name" but its changing the length of all the boxes in the column.

    What is it doing this? How can I fix it? Thanks!Click image for larger version.

    Did you create the form with wizard? The wizard 'groups' controls. Select all the controls, right click > Layout > Remove. Now you can easily resize and move the controls at will. I never use Layout view for design edits, I use Design view. However, if this is a web form, Design view is not available.
    How to attach file: To provide db: copy, remove confidential data, run compact & repair, zip w/Windows Compression.
