Datacards stuck to the left of a form



I wonder if there is an easy fix for this? If not I will have to live with it as I am running out of tiime for delivering this app.


Looking online, it seems that in a form, if you have 'Snap to Columns' unchecked in the data source area, you can then grab the datcard (where the cursor turns into a cross) and move it within the form.


When I try it, the left side of the form remains stubbornly stuck to the left of the screen. I can grab and resize it, but cannot move it. This is both using the mouse, and changing the value of the Position X field from 0 (it reverts to 0 when I tab away).


For some reason my ability to post images has disappeared so am attaching screenshots rather than embedding them.


The form was created by default from the datasource (letting Powerapps create the Datacards). This may be the issue, and when I get to phase 2 of this project I intend to create the forms from scratch myself which mght remove the issue.


This is not currently a showstopper, but would be nice to sort for aesthetic reasons.


Cheers, Andy.

Re: Datacards stuck to the left of a form

Revisited this issue today in the hope that a few months down the line I might be able to come up with a resolution.


I cannot - has anyone any idea if there is a workaround?
