Dear Jens

I did as you said, but thats a no go to. Now i cannot move variables down
at all. Their stuck on the limit between normal screen and the new area
after: automatic extension.

So still frustrated.

Maybe a possibility to manual enter the x and y coordinates to a field so
that it would be possible to manuale 'place' fields where you want them.
