access 2007-label and textbox bound together

In Access 2007 apparently moving a textbox and label separately and together is done differently than 2003- can you help- first I could only move them together and now I did something to cause them to move on their own.
thank you

Sounds like they may have been Grouped ... with is an item on the Format menu ... Group/UnGroup controls.

When creating a text box, its label is bound to it. CLick textbox and move, the label moves with it.
Click the textbox and cut, all dissapear. Click  label and delete or cut, it removes the label.
To get the label back bound to text box, cut a label, select a textbox without a label and paste.
The UI for binding/unbinding a label and a text box is Mac-esque.
