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.

Heads up @spdevel!!
After enabling this and working for awhile then saving... I opened my app to find it completely UNUSABLE. Had to turn this setting off to make the app work again.
Here is a thread explaining:
If you are able to get the data cards into the layout you like (using the default layout options or otherwise) you can also go into the data fields area and renumber/drag and drop them (in the field list not on the screen) into the order you prefer...
Doest this mean no freeform placing fields ?
as in RESPONSIVE ONLY ?
im tryign to make a complicated FORM that LOOKS like our paper form, and unfortunately it doesnt work...
as you see in this sample.. all white are form fields..
For what its worth, I have found trying make a form look different based on the look in feel of what you want to, taking more effort that it is worth.
For this reason, unless the desired outcome is very simple and the form suits, I do not use forms at all anymore. I use unbound controls that I can manipulate easily and then just patch to add or update. If I am coming from a gallery I dont use the gallery.selected method for this when a row is clicked, I just create variable based on the row. Like Set(vAlldata,ThisItem). This create a variable with a table populate with a the rows data.
This in the defaults to the controls, I simple put vAlldat.Columnname where Columnname = the column in your source. If I am creating a new record I simply use Set(vAllData,Blank()) and then reset all the controls. They will now be blank and ready for input
There are some obvious tweaks to the above, but does allow me to play with layouts.
Before going to the fields I also set a variable to say whether I am in edit or new mode. EG: Set(vNew,false) this means Edit Mode and alternative if moving from the Gallery I set to true
Then a button to patch
If(vNew=false,Patch updated data, Patch new data)
If you are facing this issue which ever datacard you want to move down add some value to it example if its 100 type 110 so that datacard will move down so that way you can rearrange
