Access 2016 relationship window, how to resize

How do I resize the Access 2016 relationship window?  I can't see most of my tables on the left corner and can't scroll to reach them.

* Please try a lower page number.

Hmm, I see that still happens...

Try pressing *Clear Layout* and then *All Relationships*.  It does put them back badly but you should still then be able to see all your Tables.

How can I make the table borders thicker or easier to grab in Access 2016, because they are way too thin?

In the Query Designer or QBE Window the tables and queries have Ultra-Thin Borders (UTB) so you cannot easily grab them to resize the table or query.

In the relationships window it is the same.

It's even the same if you look at a datasheet view of a table or query with overlapping windows on.  Though here, even though is is still SuperThin/Ultra-Thin, it seems easier to grab.

There's gotta be away around this or a fix soon.

Thanks,

s tm

@seantmac,

Not that I know of... I just move the mouse over till it changes to the double arrow then no need to *grab* the edge.

How close must I get till it changes?? 

>Move the mouse over it till it changes

Yes, I know how this should work.  Maybe my resolution is too high.

How close must I get till it changes??  I can get this close and it does not change.

Then I am on the other side and it still does not change.  

I *can* often do it -- it takes patience and precision but eventually it will change to the double arrow.

Interestingly it seems like clicking inside the table first helps it to know you're trying to grab and resize the edge.

As you can tell, I have a lot of frustrating experience just trying to resize a table in the new Access.

Hmm, that could definitely be the issue.  Have you tried a different resolution?  I know not a solution but changing the resolution to see if the problem persists is a sure fire way to determine that is the cause.

You're not the only one having this problem. It looks like a bug with Win 10. Here is a similar post.

Keep up with the Windows updates and maybe they'll get that fixed soon.

Yes, I saw this.  I am on Windows 7 running Access 2016, so it must be an Access 2016 problem not just Win 10.

What are we to do when we run Access on a Quad HD laptop that runs 3200 x whatever?

So, I finally got this to duplicate BUT I was still able to get the double arrow by hovering the mouse over the thin line.  I will agree it is a pain but at least it could be done so that you could expand the Object.
