Crack Width Calculation Spreadsheet

The problem seems to relate to the way Windows handles non-native resolutions on monitors and can be avoided in several ways The problem can be a complete nightmare when it happens, but it only happens intermittently. We have been testing recently an excel worksheet used by a few dozen people and have developed a good idea of the cause and some possible fixes. The cause seems to relate to any setup where screens are used in something other than their native resolution. This can happen easily if a user plugs an external monitor into a laptop and doesn't choose the resulting screen configuration carefully. For example, if a laptop is plugged into a projector (perhaps an old one with a native 1024 by 768 display) but the laptop is a 1280 by 800 and the user chooses to duplicate the display rather than extending it (settings in 'connect to a projector' or 'displays' control panel in Windows 7), the result is an unpredictable and usually unsatisfactory image on both screens with both in non-native resolutions. We have found that these settings almost always cause serious problems with Excel buttons, especially ActiveX controls. Red Serial Number Bills. Sometimes, on repeated clicks, they shrink to unreadability; other times they expand to cover the whole screen.

Mostly, when we instruct users to use the extend display setting and the result is two screens both using native resolutions, we don't see the problem. There are also code-based ways to minimize the problem. We tried resetting the location and size of buttons and controls when they were clicked (which adds a lot of tedious code if you have a lot of buttons). This sometimes worked. We also tried toggling the autosize property from true to false and back (this works manually in developer mode) and this fixes more instances, but not apparently all. This has been plaguing me for years, on and off. There are a number of fixes around, but they seem hit and miss.

Mar 03, 2010 I recall a side comment by RAPT on a thread (that I haven’t been able to find) regarding the appropriate use of compressive reinforcing for reducing long term c.

It was still occurring in Excel 2010 (happening to me May 2014), and is still occurring in Excel 2013 by some reports. The best description I have found that matches my situation at least (Excel 2010, no RDP involved, no Print Preview involved) is here: (This might not help for users of Excel 2013 sorry) EDIT: Adding detail in case technet link ever goes dead, the technet article says: FIRSTLY install Microsoft Hotfix 2598144 for Excel 2010, available:. SECONDLY, if your symptom is 'An ActiveX button changes to the incorrect size after you click it in an Excel 2010 worksheet', then you should: • Click Start, click Run, type regedit in the Open box, and then click OK. • Locate and then select the following registry subkey HKEY_CURRENT_USER Software Microsoft Office 14.0 Excel Options • On the Edit menu, point to New, and then click DWORD (32-bit) value. • Type LegacyAnchorResize, and then press Enter.

This issue is such a pain. The fixes discussed earlier, programatically resizing/repositioning the Active X Controls after click events, or modifying the registry (with the D word LegacyAnchorResize), didn't solve the issue for me with Excel 2010/ Windows 7 64 bit. The solution for me was found here: For Excel 2010 the link instructs to: • Exit all the programs that are running. • Click Start, click Run, in the Open box, type regedit, and then click OK. • Locate, and then click the following registry key: • HKEY_CURRENT_USER Software microsoft office 14.0 common • On the Edit menu, point to New, and then click Key. • Type Draw, and then press Enter. • On the Edit menu, point to New, and then click DWORD value.

My monitors all appear to be set at native resolutions, which deepens the mystery. However, I have found that doing SOMETHING to the button (moving or resizing) somehow fixes the problem. This routine automates the moving, and then restores the original setting. The following code seems to address the problem, at least for buttons. Public Sub StablizeButton(oButton As MSForms.CommandButton) With oButton ' If True, then temporary distortion is remedied only by clicking somewhere. ' If False, then the temporary distortion is remedied merely by moving the mouse pointer away..TakeFocusOnClick = False ' For best results: In the Properties Sheet, initialize to False..Left =.Left + 200 ' Move the button 200 units to the right..Left =.Left - 200 '. And then move it back.

End With End Sub Invoke it as follows: Private Sub MyButton_Click() StablizeButton MyButton ' Remainder of code. It's very weird. The Width & Height properties don't shrink when queried (either in code or using the properties sheet), but apparently they DO change. I noticed that if I use the properties sheet and change the width from the standard 15 to, say, 14 and then BACK to 15, it fixes it.

The code below works for me (and has an amusing visual effect on the sheet: you click, it shrinks, the screen flickers, and it expands back). MY SOLUTION in code (on the click event for the checkbox): Dim myCtrl As OLEObject For Each myCtrl In ActiveSheet.OLEObjects myLab = myCtrl.Name myCtrl.Height = 14 ' to 'wake up' the property.

MyCtrl.Height = 15 ' to reset it back to normal myCtrl.Width = 12 ' just making sure Next myCtrl. I may have found a fix: ' make sure all shapes on the worksheet have unique names' (including checkboxes/radio buttons (OLE controls) as well as Pictures and other shape types.) Because the problem is intermittent, I can not guarantee this. I have two forms now working fine using this fix, but 'two' is a very small sample set, and could just be coincidence.

I can't replicate either! Free Download Manga Studio 5 Full Crack. (can't replicate creating duplicate named shapes).

With my problem sheets: I had a bunch of 'pictures', 16 in a column, that I had copied to another column, and they create with duplicate names somehow. Didn't notice until I took the 'stab in the dark' of checking all my shape names/locations/sizes. Hopefully this helps. If anyone can please add to this with 'how to replicate duplicate shape names' then maybe we can replicate the 'shrinking controls' problem too. And hence confirm the fix – Dec 10 '14 at 0:23.
