  2. Modern Chart still needs work (dates, stacked bars fix, add Reverse Order)

    You probably should have a category, just for Access Charts, but anyway....
    Using Dates in the chart comes up as numbers, and as such, the graph always shows up with lines starting from 0 instead of the minimum date. I know we have a minimum property, but Excel understands dates and it would be nice if Access could do the same.
    Stacked bars swaps the x and y, so when I want to assign a field to the X line, I have to add the field into the Y list, and visa-versa. This is somewhat frustrating.
    Also, can we have…

  3. Add Picture Caption Arrangement property, similar to Command Buttons to Option Group Toggle Buttons

    Rather than having a row of buttons and adding an OnClick routine to them all, I just use an Option Group of Toggle Buttons with one OnClick event. I would love to have an image with my caption to make my forms look friendlier.

  6. Allow formatting of record selector

    Most of the user interface can be customized to achieve a modern look and feel. The record selector has no real formatting options.
    For instance it the user uses a black windows theme the record selectors really do not fit in with the way I have designed the application.

    It would be nice if we could
    A) Control the color of the record selector (Normal Background, Selected Backgound)
    B) Icons: Let us designate our own icons for Arrow, Asterisk, Edit,Locked mode.

  7. Focus and PopUps (The Screen.ActiveForm Nightmare)

    PopUp forms do not get focus, because they are not intended for data.

    I have read that plenty of times and know perfectly that is by design.

    But to use a PopUp form is the only way to go out of MDI boundaries, sometimes it could be practical to open data in a Popup form, and do not know why that should lead to a focus nightmare, in which a lot of events and functions cease to work or change his behaviour.
    It will very nice if we could forget that old assumptions about popups, getting in it the common…

  8. Drop-Down - Combo-Box with requery/filter behaviour as you type

    Currently the combobox can only be searched with the starting characters.
    Is it possible to extend it with an internet like behaviour:
    a combination of a textbox + combobox in 1 control which gives us the possibility to filter the recordset while typing.

  9. Display Form Caption when Minimized

    In previous releases of Microsoft Access, a minimized form would display at least a few characters of the form caption before showing the restore, max, close buttons.

    Sample:
    https://1drv.ms/u/s!AhezOlimTLoah_40R2mSOThcj5cFiQ?e=BlON97

    In current builds of Access, the restore, max, close buttons consume all of the width of the minimized window, leaving no room for even a portion of the form caption to be displayed.

    Sample:
    https://1drv.ms/u/s!AhezOlimTLoah_41HY08IxXU44DUrw?e=rpFGd1

    If multiple forms are minimized, the user is no longer able to make an informed choice about which minimized Window to restore.

    Suggestion:
    Please make the width of minimized forms wider so that the caption (which…

  10. Bug fix requested: ControlTip text does not always show when On Mouse Move event used

    In Access 2016 the ControlTip Text may not show on a control that uses the On Mouse Move event. To see the desired ControlTip it is necessary to reveal the ControlTip of another control first, then bring the mouse back to the desired control that has the On Mouse Move event.

    A better description of the issue, with screenshots, may be found here: https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/msoffice/forum/msofficeaccess-msowinother-mso2013release/controltip-text-does-not-always-show-when-on-mouse/209f54d1-edfd-4252-9f20-f24029c12d8a?messageId=c1448154-918b-420e-9e2c-5d887734a505

  11. Allow to Freeze and UnFreeze columns in Continuous Forms (Horizontal Scrolling)

    Just like in a datasheet, the user experience would be greatly enhanced with the ability to freeze key columns in view while scrolling horizontally on continuous forms.

  14. allow a form field to be searchable on a popup form.

    Allow a form field to be searchable in a pop up form, instead of graying out the Find section. It doesn't just gray out the View button. I wanted my form to be pop up and searchable, but no-go.

  15. Horizontal Data in For

    We need the ability or a control to represent our data horizontally instead of vertically. Such as the websites they are representing their products horizontally and the customer can scroll. it would be a great thing if we have this ability in ms access.

  16. Fix unwanted form resizing issues NOW!!!

    Rather than ask for a new feature, I'd prefer Microsoft get off their a** and finally fix the broken features Access already has. After years and years, there is no good reason whatsoever why MS Access forms keep blowing up during just because... potato. I use only popup forms. There is no reason why every once in a while my popup forms stop displaying at all, causing me to have to change the popup property to "No" and restart. After all these years of this very same BS, this is just retarded on Microsoft's part. And especially bad is when…

  19. Modern UX Menu Tree Control

    This Control would have a Modern Appearance that we see on a lot of Websites using the Bootstrap technology. When the User resizes the Application, it would respond and collapse to a hash icon of some type.

    This Control would be Table Sourced, where the Developer could enter Custom Search Terms and then map it to an existing Form Object. A default could be set to inherit the existing Custom Category, or inherit the Parent Child Navigation Buttons on a Navigation Control. The Developer could Customize from there. The Possibilities are endless.

    The built-in Navigator exposes too many objects to…
