    Selecting and Moving Objects Slow in REPORTS Design View

    In DESIGN VIEW for REPORTS, when I select and/or move objects (text boxes, etc.) there is a delay of up to 10-15 seconds before the object "gets focus" and/or actually moves. Sometimes I use the keyboard direction arrows to move the objects - there is the same delay - after 10 seconds the object will move the number of times that I've pressed the down/up arrows. This does not happen when I move objects in FORMS. Thanks in advance for your help. Alan

    I had something similar to this happen. What was causing it in my case is that the report's printer was set to a network printer that I was not mapped to anymore. Try setting the printer to PDF and see if that helps.

    Dan -
    Not really. The report is based on a fairly simple query with a couple of pull-down fields from other tables. There are approximately 30 yes/no checkbox fields in the report.

    Try removing the query from the datasource control, it will speed up formatting/layout changes significantly.
