[Solved] Objects move on view resize

When I resize my form view (using the Windows controls to shrink the window), various objects move in my form. I have protected the position of everything, but the buttons are still doing this. How can I keep them from stacking on top of each other when I resize my window?

Is the paper layout changing - from Horizontal layout to portrait layout?

Could you tell me how to check that? When I go to Format/Page where I would look in design view, in use view it is disabled.
Thanks!

On my test form, if the Anchor property of the right most button control is set To Page it exhibits the behavior you describe. If I change it To Paragraph, all the buttons remain in place.
