Forms: cannot change detail height!

This is killing me! I have a form, the height of whose detail section I am trying to reduce. It is currently at 5.7 inches, I want to reduce to 5.25. In the detail section, there are 5 distinct pages - each of which holds a subform. I have reduced the size of the subform on each page - so that there is about a quarter inch of white space at the bottom. But I seem unable to reduce the white space!!
Any ideas??
Thanks, gurus!!

there is an object in your detail section preventing the change to happen
perhaps a box, a vertical line or a gremlin...

Check for any small object at the bottom - often a thin line that the footer bar obscures.

Often easiest done by extending the detail down and selecting an area at the bottom and seeing if any objects are selected.

There'll be something there to stop it. Also, use the object selection combo in the toolbar and go through every object in turn and see which one pops up as selected there.

I have done as you suggested, but still no luck! I turned the grid off, and lowered the footer, but it still won't let me shrink the detail section. Any other things I can try? Perhaps a setting on the tab or detail that is preventing this?

There will be something there.

With the footer lowered, point you mouse about the original bottom left of the form (5.7) and hold the left button down and drag the the new botton of detail and right hand side of form and release. What ends up being selected?

Appears to be a tab control on the form which uses the size of the largest page - check them all out.
