Hi,
I have searched for an answer to no avail - maybe my search criteria is the problem?
As per attached images, my Form in Design View looks fine, however, in Form View it is different.
I have checked the Form sizes in Properties and they seem fine.
Any ideas as to what is going on and how I can resolve this will be appreciated.
Regards
Peter

Hi. Are you using a Popup form? If not, do you still have the same problem if you switch the form to a popup (just for testing)?

It looks like it's been maximized or in tab view.

Thank you for replying @theDBguy and @pbaldy,
I am using a Popup form.
I did change to 'No' Popup form and the problem is the same - except the header and footer dark colour goes across the whole tab.
I need to mention I initially had the Form with detail only 17cm wide.
I then decided to add the Header and Footer and simultaneously reduced the Form width to 12cm.
The attached image is a Popup image that seems to believe it is 17cm wide.
Is there a setting hidden somewhere I need to change/update?
Regards
Peter

Hi Peter. The header and footer sizes are fixed, but the detail section automatically resizes to fill the form window. One setting you could try is set the Auto Resize option to Yes.

A quick thought - could it be the size (native) of the image that is causing the form to be 17cm wide.
I used the corner grips of the image to drag it into 12cm wide.

If that's the case, try using the image as a form background instead.
