Automatically resize MS-Access Applications
A major problem in the distribution of MS Access applications is the lack of scalability. Controls are not automatically adjusted depending on the particular resolution in Windows.
Thank you for your feedback. The Access team is currently looking into resizing Access applications, starting with forms. We will provide you with a notification when this is available, and will continue to work on additional resizing/zoom support within different areas of the product at a later time.

Bill G. needs to sh*t can the whole ACCESS team for NOT fixing this!!! - WTF. I hope that they burn in HELL...the HELL that they have created for everyone Else. You are worthless, your skill set IS worthless, your schooling IS worthless, your life IS worthless. You fix NOTHING and suck down a paycheck. You have NO value and your skill set has NO Value! MS Access management should just step in front of a moving BUS - and maybe someone would FIX this epic failure!!
Anchor property is often useful but has limitations - e.g. what if I want two (side-by-side) controls to increase in size (with the second control also moving to create space for the first) when the width of a form increases?
I developed my own tool to allow for much more flexible scaling/moving of controls on forms - demos and source code available here:

What is the 'anker' property?
simply use the anker property, it works very good.
I've a manuell programming for that.
But I think, Access can do it much better, including the text size.
Meanwhile ... we have Peter's ShrinkerStretcher ... a truly awesome product which I have used several times ... check out the fully functional demo ...
