Layout Design Cut Off on Left Side

Layout Design Cut Off on Left Side

When I look at my layout in regular view, it looks fine.  I can see the entire layout.  But when I go into layout design, a large portion of the left side is not viewable.  The scroll bar is all the way to the left.  There is only one horizontal scroll bar.  I can see from looking at the properties of the fields on the edge that it starts displaying at horizontal position 111.  I can select fields from the invisible part in the properties window, but I can't see them.

It doesn't matter how big the monitor is or the setting for the screen resolution - same results.

How can I "reset" the layout.  This is only happening in the contact layout.  Other layouts are fine.  Help!  Thanks.

Try copying the layout from the demo database into your database layout folder to see if it is a problem with the current layout.

It's a custom layout.  I checked the other contact layouts and they are fine. So I guess it is a problem with that particular layout.   I tried to select all the controls to copy and paste into a new layout, but copy is not available.  Thanks for the suggestion.

If you have a graphics or shapes remove these, also try saving the layout with a new name, long shot but worth a try.

I removed the two lines that were on the layout - those were the only graphics.  Saved with a new name.  Same problem.  I always create two backup layouts and when I make a change on the first layout, I File, Save As to the other two.  Next time I'll think twice before re-saving over the backups now that I know this problem is specific to my layout and not some setting in Act.
