Width of text objects


I'm building a report that includes many fields on a 8.5x11 page, so I'm trying to get them as close to each other as possible while still maintaining some space between the fields (and between the field headings).

But the text object won't let me set the width in small increments, and instead it stays the same size as I try to stretch it sideways, until I finally make it wide enough that it resizes.

I thought this may be caused by "snap to grid," but un-checking that box made no difference, nor did chainging the grid size. And I'm not using guidelines. I also tried changing the font to a standard-width font like Courier, but that didn't make a difference.

Any ideas of why this occurs?

Thanks, Jon

It doesn't matter if you have the options unchecked you still may have guideline. Check across the top ruler in the design, if you have a symbol that looks like home plate in baseball you have guidelines.
