  1. please fix the jump occurring when scrolling in the navigation pane of Access 2016

    When scrolling in the navigation pane of Access 2016 on a Windows 10 box, the list always 'jumps" back up to a higher place than I have scrolled to. Though I have applied a few changes to my mouse and set screen enlargement to 100% (which is not realistic for me as the font is too small), the screen still jumps. I never had an issue in previous versions of Access. From researching a fix, It appears to be a long standing and unaddressed issue. It's a migraine trigger when the screen jumps and I'm trying to find something in…

    Hi, this issue is fixed in Office 365. I am resolving this so that your votes will be returned to you. If you see any further issues, consider submitting feedback using the Help tab in the ribbon in Access (of course feel free to make suggestions here as well)

  2. Bug in Access 2016 Build 9126 - right-click fail

    With Build 9126, can no longer right-click on the title bar of open objects -- unless the database is set to "Tabbed Documents" in the Document Window Option. If it's set on "Overlapping Windows", then the right-click only works when on the object in the Navigation Pane.

    So if I design a Query and then view the Results of it, I have to Save the Query so I can access its Design View again.

  6. Have custom application icon appear on taskbar in Access 2016

    Seems more like a bug - Other versions OK but a custom icon doesn't show in the taskbar in Access 2016.

    The Help system is actually a shared piece of engineering owned by a different team and surfaced within all of the Office applications. As such, this isn’t really an action item that the Access development team can take in isolation of the existing Office system.
    We have passed on this feedback to the right team for their consideration. They did ask us to forward on the following information to you:
    You can download an Access 2016 VBA CHM file on GitHub for offline use. You can find it here:
    https://github.com/OfficeDev/VBA-content/blob/master/README.md

    You can find 2013 version of VBA documentation here:
    https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=40326

  8. Fix the image issue with 2016 where they don't appear?

    Fix the current issue with images not displaying in forms/reports in Access 2016. Fix the issue of copying controls with images not working.

    Fix your bugs before tackling new projects/features.
