Aligning text boxes

Avatar

02-06-2008

I have a form that must be filled electronically and then printed



there are 100 text boxes that will have one letter in each



How can I get the 5 x 20 boxes to align so that they look like a grid rather then a bunch of slightly overlapping boxes?

What I would do is to create a table with 5 columns and 20 rows. If each cell also needs a label,I would change the Caption Position on the Layout tab to either Left or Right. If you do not want to see the grid you can remove the border from the table and each cell.

In Designer 7.1 you can use the Copy Multiple option under Edit.

Create one box, copy multiple to the right, and then select all of them and copy multiple down. Works quite nicely.
