Changing the width of a layout

You can expand or reduce the width of a layout to accommodate more objects or eliminate blank space on the layout. Making a layout wider helps you see the edge of the layout without resizing the window.

To change the width of a layout:

Drag the gray line on the right side of the layout.


Use auto-resize settings to automatically resize objects. See Setting auto-resize options for layout objects.

You can place objects on the gray area to the right of the layout. This lets you store objects with a layout, yet prevent them from appearing in Browse, Find, and Preview modes.

Objects located in the gray area:

are available for use in script steps.

do not appear in Browse mode regardless of auto-resize settings.

are skipped in the tab order.

appear in dialog box lists and in Table View (field objects).
