Snap To Grid Gone

Using AccessXP

I have lost snap to grid on my system. New or existing databases do not snap to
grid for forms and reports in design view. Anyone have an idea on how to get it
back??

Thanks.

Snap to Grid should be available on the Format menu in Form Design View or
Report Design View.

If it is not there, first check that the menus are expanded. If they are,
and the item is still missing:

1 Right-click beside the toolbars and choose Customize.

2. Select the Menu Bar.

3. Click Reset

Allen,

Thanks for the response!

In all previous databases the default must have been Snap to Grid. Now something
changed where all previous forms and reports were snap to grid, they are all now
not snap to grid. Likewise, any form or report I try to create does not snap to
grid - has the default changed?

It's not a matter of formatting all forms and reports. Something has changed all
forms and reports on my system.

Does anyone know a fix to this problem? In the Windows Form Designer, I have set my snap-to grid setting to false. However, the controls on the form still snap to the grid. I have tried setting this and restarting VB.NET, but to no avail.

You know, snap to grid when dragging a new command button or other object? If you used autocad (command line DOS) YOU know exactly what I mean. I want to size my objects - not be forced to snap to the grid.

I have a picture that I allow the user to move around and would like to offer grid support like VB and other apps so that it will snap to the nearest point. How can I offer grid support so that the image will snap in place on grid points like a commerical app? I am not sure how to implement that. Anyone have any code? Thanks,

A few years ago, I worked on a project in which I designed some tables, queries, forms, and reports. I'm reasonably certain that when I was designing the forms for that project, I set the snap-to grid to something like 1/16", or 1/10", or 1/8" -- enough so that it was obvious that the form elements were nicely lined up (and nicely spaced),...
