I have VS Pro 2013 update 5 with CRforVS_13_0_20.1502797732. I am using a jpg in a picture box in the detail section as a background to represent a pre-printed document. I will suppress the jpg at runtime or maybe just remove it all together so as not to print the image with my data fields. What I am having trouble with is at design time ones I place my text box on top of the picture box with the jpg I can then no longer select the text filed, it’s as though it is being flatted somehow as one with the picture box. If I place the text field on the design surface 1st of any section then I can move it, resize it as you would expect, but as soon as I move it on top of the picture box it is stuck. I have 3 reports acting the same way. I have closed my project and reopened. Is this a bug anyone knows about?
