Cannot change selection of radio button with Yes/No options - sometimes

P: n/a
I have an application with several forms. Most forms use radio boxes
for Yes/No choices. On a few of these, once one option is selected, the
user cannot change the selection without moving to another field and
then entering the change on the original checkbox. I should mention
that there is a background image underneath the entire form.

Sometimes I can select any choice and then select the other.

On other sets of Yes/No radio buttons, I cannot change after the initial
selection without clicking on another text field in the form and then
going back.

Suggestions?

Is it possible that the groupbox has its Locked property set to True,
or the form has its AllowEdits property set to False at that time?

You need to find a reproducible scenario.

NO the groupbox is not locked and allow edits is true. I do not monkey
with them via VBA code.

It works the first time I try on the specific option group. If I
immediately want to change my mind I can't. but if I go to another
field in the system and then return I can change the selection, again
one time only.

In the same form I have other option groups that allow me to change my
selection all day long.

Yes it is reproducable.

the only thing I have noticed is that I tried to squeeze the size of the
option group box outline to make it fit in my form better. Those seem
to be the ones with the problem. Option groups I did not monkey with
after they were created seem to work fine.
