Insert form controls

  1. To insert a form control into the document, click the control’s icon to select it. The mouse pointer changes to look like this: Image:FormMousePointer.png
  2. Click in the document where you want the control to appear. (You can move it later.)
  3. Holding the left mouse button down, drag the control to size it.
  4. The control button remains active, so you can insert several controls of the same type without needing to go back to the toolbar.
  5. To change to another tool, click its icon on the toolbar.
  6. To stop inserting controls, click on the Select button Image:SelectIcon.png on the Form Controls toolbar, or click on any of the controls you have just inserted. The mouse pointer changes back to its normal appearance.
Image:Tip.png Holding down Shift when creating a form control makes the control square. If you press Shift when resizing an existing control, its proportions are kept the same.
Image:documentation_note.png When you insert a group box, list box, or combo box, a wizard is launched to guide you through the setup. If you prefer not to run the wizard, click the Wizards On/Off button Image:FormWizardsIcon.png on the Form Controls toolbar.
