Form window scroll bars - always there?

P: n/a
When I open a form design window in Access 2003 it *always* has scroll
bars, this is even when the form itself is tiny. It's as if the
'page' on which the form is being designed is very large.

Is this normal? If so it's very annoying and confusing. If not then
how do I get it so my form design window doesn't have scroll bars.

yes, form Design view defaults to scroll bars and AFAIK there's no way to
hide them in Design view. if you can see all sections of your form entirely
without using the scroll bars, then just ignore them.

Yes, it does help, thanks! It really does seem like a bug though as
in every other application scroll bars only appear when there's
something 'off window' so these scroll bars in Access make one think
there's something you've lost off the edge somewhere.

Oh well, I'll live with it! :-)
