    Default Form Tabs scrunched

    Hi I am just trying the 30 day version and I like it much better than those bloated othersoft offerings...

    Anyway on a Tabbed form (where you click the tab for that page of the form) the tab itself is scrunched and unreadable you can still click on it to swap back and forth.

    I need to get something working for a service company (nothing grand just a couple of databases) but I would get yakked at if I tried to use this right now..

    Thanks .. Larry

    In edit mode, right click the tabbed object, select Properties and adjust the Tab Width, etc, as desired.

    If Peter's suggestion fails, in form design mode go to
    view/settings
    and find the units of measure tab (or section). Check "always use US units".

    You see, this problem sometimes occurs when different units of measure are specified in different places of one computer or different computers (if you move the application among computers).

    Thanks I finally figured it out just before your message (always the way huh) the sample stuff has the tab height set incredibly small .. go fiddle it and hey Ma! I can see the text.

    Now back to working out whether I can do what I want with this beastie.

    Thanks .. Larry
