Changing a layout part
1. In Layout mode, choose Layouts menu > Part Setup.
2. In the Part Setup dialog box, select the part, then click Change.
3. In the Part Definition dialog box, make your changes.
To change
Do this
From one type of part to another
Select a different part type. Changes you can make depend on the part's location and function.
The break field for a subsummary part
First choose the table that contains the field from the tables list above the list of fields. Then select the field name in the list of fields.
Page breaks and page numbering
Layout part color
To quickly change a layout part color, right-click the part label.
Whether records in List View are displayed with an alternating fill, as specified by the Alternate display state
Select or deselect Use alternate row state.
Whether the current (or active) record is displayed with a different fill from the other records in List View, as specified by the Active display state
Select or deselect Use active row state.
The order of layout parts
Drag the name of the part to the new location. (A part that can't be moved displays Lock icon to the left of its name.)
Note  While working in Layout mode, you can click the Selection tool Selection tool in the status toolbar and Shift-drag the line that marks the bottom of the part.
Dimmed types are not available because either:
that part type already exists (only subsummary parts can exist more than once on a layout)
the part you're changing is not in the right place on the layout (for example, a title header must be at the top of the layout)
