While you are designing a form:
- Each form window has a Maximize, Minimize, and Close button.
- You can view the form grid and determine the size of the gridlines on the General tab of the Options dialog box.
- Use the buttons in the Toolbox to draw controls on the form. You can set your controls to align with the grid of your form on the General tab of the Options dialog box.
Use these key combinations in the UserForm window. To deselect all controls, click the form. To select controls in a container, first deselect the container and then use CTRL+CLICK+DRAG around the desired controls.
