Forms layout keeps changing



We want to start using an powerapp form in our sharepoint environment. Somehow arranging the controls is not possible. I have tried to switch of "snap to collums",  i have switch to classic mode rendering and also made all my controls visible. Some controls the x and y just can't be changed or it wil jump to the end of my form.


is there a best practice how to rearrange controls in a form?

i think i have found a workaround.


I had this secanerio where i could not get control c on control x location. Every time i adjusted control c its "position y" value it wil drop down the form. Or when is change the order in my data source it would drom down or mess up other controls.


control a    control b

control x    control d

control c


i have change control c property "width fit" to yes. Then i moved it up so it would appear on the same row as control a and b. Than i adjust control b width again so control c would drop down 1 line and after i can set (or not) width fit to no again. And it wil stay in the correct place.


for now it works fine but i hope i don't have to change the form soon. so if there is anyone who has an other great idea to make the control position work.. please 🙂
