Datacards are misplacing


I am building PowerApps application with Oracle database. Whenever I add new datacard, already added datacards are misplacing. Again I need to spend time on formatting. 

How to lock the datacards? Any suggestion would be greatly appreciated.


Thank you,

Using forms at first can be frustrating but if you stick with it and learn all the quirks, you can end up with some nice layouts.  No you cannot "lock" the data card and in fact I recommend turning off the 'snap to grid' option so you can resize and drag them around easier. 

If you want to get even more into it, the X and Y values will determine the place on the form and you can force difficult cards into place by doing this.  So think of the form as a grid in your head.  The first row will have X0,Y0 X1,Y0 X2,Y0 and next row X0,Y1 X1,Y1 X2,Y1  etc.  You can even slide things in between like if you wanted a row between Y0 and Y1 you can use Y0.1 - 0.9 to add as much as you want.  


Thank you for your comments. I am updating horizontal and vertical positions but somehow they are moving down. 

If there are 3 datacards in one row, one or 2 cards are moving down.

Thank you.
