How did I accidently turn "snap" on in access 97?

MLH
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.

In form/report view, click format->snap to grid to turn that feature on/off.

I prefer it to leave it on myself, all the controls just line up.
Unfortunately some of of my collgues leave it off and their forms look
like they flicked the controls onto them using a ruler from half way
across the room.

Actually, you are probably doing the right thing. I believe my snap
resolution is too large. If it were a bit tighter, I would be happy
with it I'm sure.

If you make it sufficiently small, it's just like not having it on.

So change the grid dimensions, they are in the
form.properties .format tab as GridX andGridY

You prolly using inches right? We use centimetres this side of the pond
so the grid is smaller. I remember using inches once with snap to grid
on and on a 640x480 screen at the time there was only about 4 places a
button could go :-)

Actually, we're a confused bunch in the UK as we have 2 measurement
systems, imperial and metric. The tyres on my car are 225mm x 15". We
buy petrol (gas) in litres and measure economy in MPG (and pay more per
litre than you do per gallon, grrr).

I have a page that displays a datalist of multiple data items. In each dataitem I have gridviews that are pagable. It looks simular as I show below.

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), but nothing so widely spaced as 1 whole inch apart (origin to origin). Now, however, I'm trying...

In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not. For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...
