Tips for aligning and resizing fields
Use the following tips for aligning and resizing fields in a form:
- Use the grid. Setting the grid width and height to 10 should allow you enough control to align the fields in your form precisely.
- Keep the grid on for accurate alignment of your fields.
- Align the field labels before you align the data entry regions, as shown in the following figure. To help with alignment, set the Align to Grid option to Left.
- If you select multiple fields, the fields are grouped and cannot be modified individually. After you align the field labels, click anywhere in the form. Then select the field and resize its data region individually. After selecting a field, the resize handles appear for the field, as shown in the following figure. Select the resize handle for the data region and stretch it to the appropriate alignment and size. For example, you can stretch data regions so that the fields align. Then you can stretch the data region again so that the menu boxes align.
