I have not created a form in some time so I need a memory refresh.
When I reduce the width of a Field, the label becomes obscured.
As I remember, there used to be a way to adjust the 'label' and lock the Label with its Field, but I no longer see an Icon for that.

I might as well a second, maybe dumb question.
Is there any way to change or drop the subform(s)?

Any help will be appreciated.

If you use a wizard to create a form control it is often grouped with its label. Use Ctrl + Click to select just the control, the size of which can be changed without altering its label. Alternatively right click the grouped control & label, and select "Ungroup" from the displayed options.

At risk of endorsing more than one question within the same thread, use the "Form navigator" icon from the "Form Design" toolbar to display a list of the forms and controls, select the sub-form and press the DELETE key. Alternatively simply click on the sub-form in the form document and press the DELETE key, but be sure to select the correct sub-form. To change the properties of the sub-form instead of pressing the DELETE key, use the "Form" icon from the "Form Design" toolbar to display its properties dialog.

Thanks.
I found the answer to my first question in the basic BASE tutorial.

For second question I was looking for a technique similar to editing a query.
I can not see a "Form navigator" icon. Will have to work with this.

It can be found as the 5th icon from left/top of the Form Design toolbar
