Can't resize/reposition fields independently

I highlight a table and click Create -> Form. Access creates the form with all fields as desired. When I select Design View and try to resize a field or move a field all the fields are affected. Access won't let me change the field sizes independently.

A couple of really simple queries regarding resizing and basic buttons
1) I am resizing my fields on a form but when I resize one of the fields the rest of the fields resize as well. How do I only resize one of them?

2) I would like to add a button that lets me search for a record. I have added a button and have used the Find Record Macro builder. I have no clue what to do from there though.


Contiguous Forms
Is there a way to make these resize on their own based on the number of records? Auto Resize is set to yes. Also, it's a subform.

Basically, I just need it to resize on it's own so there's only one scroll bar (it's a tab on a Navigation Form


Move and resize controls independently
By default, when you create a new form by using one of the form tools on the Create tab, or when you add fields to a form while it is open in Layout view, Access 2007 puts text boxes and other controls in guides called layouts. A layout, indicated by an orange grid around the controls, helps you align controls horizontally and vertically to give the form a uniform appearance.

DoCmd.MoveSize after DoCmd.PrintOut
I have a form (actually a calendar on a form) that I am printing out, but in order to have it fit on the printout, I have to resize the form, then print out, then I wanted to resize the form to the original size that the user had it.

The code works perfectly up until I try and movesize after I printout. It goes through the code, but the actual window does not resize. If I actually step through the code it will resize. If I remove the printout, it will resizes just fine. I thought that if I added a pause that it would help. That didn't work. It is really strange. Any help here would be great. I have looked everywhere to see if anyone else has encountered it.

Essentially this is the code that I am using.

Make controls stretch, shrink, or move as you resize a form
By default, the controls on a form stay anchored to the upper-left corner of the form, and do not resize when you resize the form. To change this behavior, you can use the Anchoring command. For example, you can configure a text box so that it stretches down and to the right as the form becomes larger. This lets you see more text in the control.

Access 2007: Resizing one textbox resizes all
All textboxes were auto-created from the Data Source | table. Now, I want to resize some of the textboxes to smaller and larger.

When I give focus to one textbox and drag to resize, all textboxes automatically get focus and resize as well. Or, when I change the textbox width in the Properties for one text box, all of them change. Never saw this behavior in Access 2003.
