Contents Tool Factory Workshop Moving and Resizing Fields
Grade: K-12
Required products: Tool Factory Database V2
Instructions
Initially, fields are randomly placed on the page.

MOVING FIELDS
Simply hold the mouse button down and drag fields to a new location. Get rid of any overlap in the fields.

RESIZING FIELDS
1) Click on a field. It gets handles in the corners and on the sides.
2) Roll the mouse over a handle. It will change into small arrows.
3) Hold the mouse button down and drag.

Notice that some handles won’t work. For example, the height of a single-line text box can’t be changed because it is dependent on the size of the font. In order to change font size, hi-light the text box and click the “Caption” or “Text” button.

*TIP* Maximize the entire project by clicking the center button in the upper right. This will provide a bigger work space to build the database project.
