Hello All,

Sometimes when I edit a form or copy a form my buttons lose "Use Theme". It doesn't happen all the time but does occur in different databases.

Thanks for the help!

Sometimes when I edit a form or copy a form my buttons lose "Use Theme".

I'm aware of a bug in Access 2016 that will cause this behavior if you import a form from another database. Maybe it happens too, if you just copy a form inside one and the same database. I haven't tried that.

I found some additional info on this in my archive.
I was able to reproduce the above issue consistently in June 2016. When I tried to do that again later, in October 2016, the problem was not reproducible any more. The Access version number after the problem was gone was 16.0.7167.2040. So you should check if you are running this version (or newer) and try to update Access to the most recent update if not.

I think there are also some settings to controls that will cause them not to comply with themes.

gemmathehusky - Thanks for the link.

Phil - At least I know that I am not alone. I will check and see what version I have. Appreciate it.
