Hello,

I previously created a number of different userforms in VB for Outlook and everything was fine. However in the last few months I've noticed that when I open the userforms the displayed size and position of controls, text boxes etc can vary randomly. Has anyone else ever came across this? In VB when I preview/ run the userform it looks fine but when I open the user form say using a macro in Outlook it is messed up.

Thanks

The problem was only occurring when I was using an external monitor plugged into my laptop. The solution is to select the 'Optimise for compatibility' setting which can be found in File>Options>General
