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.
