Data card won't move to another position on screens.

I am trying to customize a generated app by moving a data card to a different position on the screen.  Every time I try to move it, it bounces back the orignal positition or someplace else I don't want.  I edited to x,y properties to  move it to a position but no work.  I was thinking there might be a formula someplace that was generated when creating the app   but couldn't find one if there is.

Any ideas would be helpful.

Thank you but I cannot find that setting.  Where is thhat located please?


That was it, Thanks!


good afternoon, a few days ago I could move the fields in the form developed with powerapps, currently it is not possible. to. form of 2 columns. b. I tried disabling the automatic adjustment and did not solve the problem. Confirm if you have removed the functionality of freely moving through the fields form?

I have also seen this issue.  You can move the cards using the X & Y values.  The X is the position left to right and the Y is the value up and down.  I think Microsoft has removed the ability to move cards by dragging and dropping.

I need the confirmation from Microsoft, because with the move freely on the screen, there were actions that took a short time.

There might also be a bound issue.  If your datacard is slighty too large,  any move will not work.   Shrink your data cards,  do the move then expang to suit

Could somebody please post a bit of an explination?  Thanks
