Microsoft Access Form Design

I'm relatively new to post Access 2003 development, and am currently working with Access 2007.  When I design a Form, from a table, I'm finding that all the fields are somehow "snapped to a grid", and creating some design issues for me.  For example, when I delete a field, the following fields are automatically shifted up on the form.  If I try to resize a field, all the fields above and below on the form are resized.  I also cannot move / position individual fields on the form.

I'm sure there is a very simple answer to this, but cannot find how to separate all the fields on the form (for formatting purposes).

Thanks for your help.

in the design view of the form
select all conrols
click on Arrange from the ribbon

in the COntrol Layout group, click on Remove icon

It sounds like you are using one of the newer pre-designed form types such as split forms.

For a design environment with the manageability of earlier versions of Access, I would suggest simply creating them from scratch in design view rather than using those new form types.
