Sizing fields

Use field handles, arrow keys, field properties, or command on the Layout menu to set the size of field labels and values.

To resize a selected field

  • Using the field resize handles, drag the left or right resize handle to increase or decrease the size or drag the center resize handle to set the sizes of the label and value parts.
    If you move the center resize handle to make the label area too small for the label, the mouse pointer becomes a circle-with-slash prohibited symbol.
  • Using the field properties, set the Data Length and Width properties in the Properties tab.
  • Using the arrow keys, press the period until the double-arrow resize mouse pointer shown in the following figure appears on the appropriate resize handle, press the left and right arrow keys until the field is the correct size, and then press period or Enter to complete the resize or Escape to cancel it.



Resize mouse pointer

To resize two or more fields

  1. Select two or more fields.
  2. Use the mouse or the arrow keys to move one of the resize handles on one of the fields.
    All the selected fields are resized relative to the field you operate on.

To make fields the same size using commands

  1. Select two or more fields.
    The other fields' size are set to the size of last field you select, the alignment field.
  2. To make the size of the other fields' labels the same as the size of the alignment field's label, select Layout > Size Fields > Size Label.
  3. To make the size of the other fields' values the same as the size of the alignment field's value, select Layout > Size Fields > Size Value.

To make fields the same size using field properties

  1. Select two or more fields.
  2. In the Properties tab, set the Data Length, Label Width, and Width to the correct values.
    The values are changed for all fields. This is an example of setting common field properties.

    Note

    Use this method to set other common field properties that apply only to the current form view. Among these are, Label Alignment, Label Justification, and Label Location.
