Text Controls moving on Report depending on screen size.

Text Controls moving on Report depending on screen size.

Text Controls moving on Report depending on screen size.

(OP)
I have imported a form into an access report and sent it to the back. I over lay this form with text fields that will contain data computed by my DB. My problem is - the text fields move depending on the screen I use. I set this up on my main monitor but if I use just my laptop screen the text fields have moved and no longer line up on the back ground form of the report.

Is there anyway to freeze the text field to the correct location on the background form of the report?

Thanks

John

RE: Text Controls moving on Report depending on screen size.

Can we assume you imported an image? The use of "form" in Access is something different.

Is the image in the Picture property of the report or is it an image control?

Are all sections set to not allow growing and shrinking?

Are the default printers the same?

Are the screen resolutions the same?

If you print to the printer are they still different?

Duane,

See answers to the right of your questions.

Can we assume you imported an image? The use of "form" in Access is something different. Yes it is captured image of a PDF file.

Is the image in the Picture property of the report or is it an image control? Image properties = Picture Type Embedded, Picture = bitmap, Size Mode = bitmap

Are all sections set to not allow growing and shrinking? All set to NO except 1. I just changed it to No

Are the default printers the same? Not working with a printer - when I open the report on main monitor it looks good. When I open it on the laptop screen all overlay-ed text fields have moved.

Are the screen resolutions the same? Development (main monitor) 1920 X 1080 (recommended)change size of text and other items set to 100%. On the laptop screen 1920 X 1080 (recommended)change size of text and other items set to 125%

If you print to the printer are they still different? Yes

RE: Text Controls moving on Report depending on screen size.

Is the Size Mode set to Clip, Stretch, or Zoom? Have you tried the other Size Modes?

Are the text sizes different?

Can you describe how the text moves? In one, does everything move to the right and down a little?
