Broken window RRS feed

  • Question

  • When I have a form in MS Access 2016 in design mode, the scrolling is not synchronized. It looks like a broken window. Only the right bottom part of the form performs a scroll. The rest stays frozen.

    This only happens when I use the windows "extend desktop" option when I use a second monitor on my laptop. It has nothing to do with video drivers because I experience this error like many other developers on several brands of laptops with different video drivers.

    Pleas help

  • Unlike you, I think it has to do with video drivers. I and many other developers use two monitors without this issue.

  • Hi Tom,

    thanks for the quick reply. As I stated before, not only I but other developers experience this same issue with different brands of laptops and thus different video drivers. 

    We all experience this issue when the second monitor is on 100%. If it is on 150% than everything works fine. The only thing than is, that everything (fonts, controls etc.) are very big!

    Kind regards

    Jim

  • Thank you for the extra information about zoom level. I will pass it on to MSFT. No guarantees...

  • Does the problem go away when you close and re-open Access?

  • I've experience all sort of visual issues (both in the GUI and in the VBE) with the latest versions of Access.  I close everything down and restart it.  You always, sadly, just get used to it after a while.
