Move the Control on the Page

After adding a control to a Screen page, you may move it to another location on that page such that it is above or below other controls placed on that page. Consider when moving this control that it contains other controls. A control cannot be moved to another Screen page.
Follow these steps to move a control to another location on that Screen page:

    Place your cursor anywhere on the control not displaying the Duplicate Control
    or Delete Control
    buttons.
    2.
    Hold your cursor, then drag the control above or below other controls on that Screen page. Screen Builder previews where the control would display on the page based on how you position the control above or below other controls. If the control cannot be placed in a location because your cursor is above an existing control or too far to the left or right of the page, the
    icon displays in the preview.
    3.
    Place the control at the location on the page you want it. The other control(s) on the page automatically adjust position.

Copy the Control with its Settings

Copying a control also copies the current settings of that control. The copied control displays below other controls placed on that Screen page.

    2.

Follow these steps to delete a control from a Screen page:
