Navigation ribbon tabs overlapping
Using Access 2013
In the Create menu, I have used the Navigation tool to create a navigation form.
Horizontal Tabs, Two Levels.
The background for the tab I find that all the Tabs (level 1 & level 2) width seems increase when that tab is selected. This newly sized tab partially overlaps it's neighbor tab.
I would like to prevent this. Any help would be appreciated.

Probably would be best to upload a sample of your database. Visual issues like this are nearly impossible to troubleshoot without actually seeing them.
Be sure to remove any sensitive data first.
I've created a completely new database with nothing more than the navigation control. The problem continues for me in this new database.
I've also included two screen captures that demonstrate some of the effects. The problem is more than visual though, because when I move from form to form, I am asked if I would like to save changes.
Hmm - Try it out on a different computer/different size monitor/etc...
You might need to post more information about how you are opening the form, screen size, more about your environment.
Your sample works perfectly for me in Access 2013 and 2010, no issues with the tabs at all when looking at the form in Form View.

I copied the example database to a laptop (Access 2007). It worked fine there.
I agree that this must be about the environment. Currently, I am looking to reset the environment form my display. I am also looking to reset all settings for Microsoft Access to default.
I really don 't know what information that I could send about the environment (computer settings) that could help.
I still do not see any light at the end of the tunnel. I'm still looking though.
Oh yeah.. I am using Windows 8.1
I've completely uninstalled / installed office 365.
That did not help
I have a second vga monitor so I removed my primary monitor and tried the file on the VGA monitor after the new Office 365 install.=. Same results.
Frustrated.. lol Oh yeah.

I changed the custom sizing to 100% (smallest of 3 options). Also I had to turn off scaling on the video card.
Now, the navigation control tabs look as they should. Thanks all.
