    Unanswered: Design View

    I am very new to Access and have not been able to find a way to be in Design View and zoom in to align text fields. Is this possible? I have used another database that allowed me to zoom in and out to see how the details.

    Design View

    I have developed a database and created a form and want to zoom in to align objects on the form. Sorry if I was too vague.

    When the form is in design view, select all the controls you want to align then open the Format menu (Acc 2000-2003) or its equivalent (Acc 2007-2010) and select "Align".
    Have a nice day!

    so you want to align controls on a form?

    easiest way to do that in my books is to select all the controls you want with the same property, say vertical position, then right click for properties select the format tab and set the 'top' property to whatever value you want
    do the same for any controls you want to set the horizontal postion and set he left property

    Not quite what I was looking for, but it does help me out. Thanks
