    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.

    1.
    Select the control to be deleted.
