More snap-to-grid wierdness

Greetings!

I see from the group archives that a lot of people don't like how Snap to
Grid works when placing controls on forms. I am now among that number.
When I had the Windows Forms Designer option for snap to grid set to False
and the form's SnapToGrid and DrawGrid properties left at their default
settings, I could hold down Ctrl and use the arrow keys and my control would
move one pixel in the desired direction. But when I used the mouse to move
the control, the control would only move to grid points. When I set
SnapToGrid to False in the form, I could move my controls anywhere I wanted
with the mouse, but when moving them with the keyboard I could only move to
grid points! How can I divorce control position and size completely from
the grid points while still seeing the grid points?

Thanks again!

Rob, who will now decide which of the limited number of options he dislikes
the least

Hi Rob,

When it is at the user side it is all HTML so it has to do with that, you
can use the build in Grid, or change it in HTML (you can reach that by
clicking that left bellow)

It is nothing more than this

<body ms_positioning="GridLayout">

I hope this helps?
