Hi All,
I have several drop down combo boxes on my sheet.
The boxes are condensed to about 1cm * 1cm with light green background and black text. Only a small section of the background is visible.

The problem is that part of the text (the last letter in fact) is superimposed over part of the drop down button itself making the whole thing look untidy. I can eliminate it by resizing the box but it will not then fit into the area on my sheet allocated visually for that box.

Is there something that can be changed in the properties so that the text fits behind the button not on top of it. I've tried the send forward/back etc options without effect. Has anyone else encountered this mystery.

Cheers,
RC
