Can't resize/reposition fields independently

Can't resize/reposition fields independently
Views: 356
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 Icon
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?

Move and resize controls independently

Move and resize controls independently Icon
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.

I have created a form in Access 2010 using the Form button (not the Form Wizard) based on a table. I am unable to resize the fields separately as they all resize at once in both Design and Layout views. I am unable to move them around either.

DoCmd.MoveSize after DoCmd.PrintOut

DoCmd.MoveSize after DoCmd.PrintOut Icon
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.
