I've used panels to put my labels and control functions in the canvas of the form, I've taken them out of panels and I'm still getting issues with overlapping of my data.

Hello Claire, I am having the same issue as you and did involve support for this awaiting a solution for this.
I have a form with 4 panels over a Form with Form Height 5600 x Width 800 pixels set.
Furthermore I am using a series of rules for a controls over the form.
Are you also using panels on your Form, as it looks like and rules on the individual controls ?
In another post below I read that best practice is to put the controls in a panel and set rules on the panels itself
I've tried with Panels and without, the only way I could resolve the issue was to reset the form and re-build it, then it seemed to work.
I also changed the size of the canvas and it worked for a while.
Maybe this has something to do with the order of your rules, the rules are executed based on their order. If you use "Disable" instead of "Hide" for the rules does the problem still appear?
See the link above, same issue. Its frustrating but with some adjusting of the form you should be able to get it to go away (rules do cause this as well).
Hi Mike, thanks for heads up on this, if I read carefully through the posts and see what I have got before I do see 2 weird things happening:
Other users also mentioned a couple of tricks they applied.
So all Together is this the final conclusion today ?
Jaap Steenis do you find any from the answers as a solution for your question so that you could mark it as correct? Or have you found a better solution you could share with us?
Thanks for the directions and help, indeed using panels individually sorted the main issues.
But like other members also mentioned, it's not a frustration free environment.
That about sums it up. PS: Some situations will call for you to place rules on individual controls and that's OK as opposed to panels. However if you start running into issues, you may have to take a closer look at those instances. I hope to see this fixed in a future release.
Also make sure to just IE as the browser. I found lost of inconsistencies when using other browsers.
