My company has been using ACT for over 10 years and we recently decided to take everything in house and move it into the ACT premium Cloud, life has been a nightmare ever since.
Our database is royally screwed up, the option to define layouts loads up completely blank, as well as our previous fields are all stacking on top of each other. The option to even set field security is no longer there for our administrator accounts.
Anyways, I just got done with a 3 hour call to ACT support and they pawned me off to a local Act certified consultant to fix our issues. Is this normal in your experience? I don't see how a third party is able to fix all these back end issues for their hosted platform. Maybe I am wrong so it would be great if someone could let me know.
Thanks again for your time,

This version of ACT is hosted by Swiftpage themselves. Here is the issue we are facing in our layout and when we try to fix it in the layout tool it won't load anything:
As you can see a lot of the text for the fields have grouped on top of each other. My guess is this would be a simple fix in the layout editor if we could get anything running.
Before this issue the define fields tool was just presenting an error that it couldn't communicate with the server. I really don't mean to complain, but until we can edit our layouts to make them functional again everyone is dead in the water, we simply don't know what data we are looking at for our contacts.

Is this the same using both IE and Chrome? If using IE try with compatibility mode switched on and then off. Although this looks like a template problem I have seen some odd things happen when looked at in IE in compatibility mode for some odd reason with ACT V18

This particular screenshot was taken in Chrome. This same issue also occurs in the latest versions of Firefox and IE 11 without compatibility or enterprise mode.
