Unable to alter size of field or field label in design layout

Im creating some new fields in ACT and often rename the label.  Once I've renamed a field label it is often taking up more space than is needed to enclose the text.  I've tried highlighting it and I get to the double sided arrow but when I try to drag it wider or smaller the label size doesnt change.  The same occurs with the fields themselves. Im set up as an Administrator on ACT so I dont think it would be an access issue

Anyone else have this problem?

You can try changing the field size and location using the properties panel (F4 if it isn't showing).

I am having the same problem.  I am using the properties window but the size still reverts back.  Anyone find a solution?
