In Designer, right-click displays various context menus that contain commonly used commands. The availability of commands depends on the selected items – design surface or object.

  • Design surface context menu commands are described here.

  • Object context menu commands are described here.

Design Surface Context Menu

When right-clicking the design surface, a context menu appears. The context menu includes commonly used commands:

  • Document Properties: opens the label properties or form properties dialog.

  • Select all: selects all objects on the design surface.

  • Alignment and Gridlines: allows you to define how the objects take their positions on the design surface.

    • Align to objects: makes the object on the design surface align with other objects. When two objects are aligned, a leading line appears linking the edges of the two aligned objects.

    • Align to grid: makes the object on the design surface align with gridlines. When moving the object, it always snaps to the gridline.

    • Do not align: allows you to move the objects freely.

    • Display gridline guides: makes the gridlines visible.
