I have 3 tabs on a layout. I want to reorder the tabs. When I double click the tab name; I get the box to reorder rename, etc.; however, I cannot do anything. The box is "shadowed". How do I resolve this?
Sounds to me like the object is locked. Click on the tab control and check the inspector to ensure it isn't locked.
Great. I did it and unlocked all my tabs for now and the dialogue box was available one time. Then when I went back to try to access this box again, everything was shadowed again. Any other suggestions?
Is the tab control part of a group that is locked?
Thank you. Where would I see what you are asking for? I setup 3 tabs originally and then added another yesterday; should this make a difference?
Enter layout mode
Single click the tab control to select it.
What do you see?
Do you see the typical "box" type selection handles and a box right at the boundaries of the tab control?
If so, control is not locked and does not appear to be part of a group, but you can pull down the Arrange menu and choose "ungroup" to be sure.
Do you see "x's" instead of boxes? If so, the control is still locked and may also be part of a group that is locked.
Thanks so much! the Arrange was the answer!
Have a terrific day.
