PRB: How the Scaling Property Affects Embedded MS Draw Object

Article ID: Q101371
Creation Date: 12-JUL-1993
Revision Date: 19-SEP-1996 The information in this article applies to:

  • Microsoft Access versions 1.0, 1.1, 2.0

SYMPTOMS


Advanced: Requires expert coding, interoperability, and multiuser skills.

When you have an embedded Microsoft Draw object that includes both text and graphical elements, the text and graphical elements grow and shrink in different degrees.

STATUS


This behavior is by design.

MORE INFORMATION


If the Scaling property is set to Scale when you adjust the size of an embedded object's frame, the object grows or shrinks to fit the size of the frame. This setting allows graphical elements, such as rectangles and ovals, to become distorted. Fonts do not become distorted when you resize their width, but will be distored if you resize their height to greater than 1 inch.

Steps to Reproduce Behavior


  1. Create a new unbound form.
  2. Add an unbound object frame using the Object Frame tool, which is located directly beneath the Graph tool in the toolbox.
  3. Select Microsoft Drawing as the Object Type.
  4. Select the Text Object tool in Microsoft Draw, and type some text.
  5. Select the Rectangle tool in Microsoft Draw and draw a rectangle around the text. From the Edit menu, choose Send To Back.
  6. From the File menu, choose Exit And Return To Microsoft Access. When the dialog box asks you to update Microsoft Access, choose Yes.
  7. Change the Scaling property of this Object Frame control to Scale.
  8. Stretch the right side of the object to the right a few inches. Note

that

   the box stretches. The text stretches, but not to the extent that it
   becomes disproportionate.
