centering form

centering form

centering form

(OP)
Iv'e tried to no avail to center a form on the screen in design view. When I change views the form reverts back to the left and I can't seem to get it to center and stay there. Drag n drop does not do it and I dont see a way to adjust the margins. What am i missing?

Thanx

RE: centering form

What are your current Document Window Options?

If you have chosen Overlapping Windows, did you set the Auto Center property?

RE: centering form

RE: centering form
