Hi
I want to understand Developer-->Design mode and what is used for. I read this post

https://www.mrexcel.com/forum/excel-questions/32669-design-mode-vba.html

and Parry said: ""If you select the Control Toolbox to draw a control etc, you will notice that design mode automatically comes on.""

but that is not what is happening to me. If I add a button or not, the design icon will not be highlighted or selected. Everything is working fine. What could cause that? Thank you very much.

It will switch to design mode if you select an ActiveX control from the insert menu, but not if you select a Forms control.
