Default Labels on form


I need help with unattaching a label from a text box. I put a label from my field list on my form however by default the label ant text box are set up left to right. How do I separate them in order to place the text box below the label?

Select the label, then Cut it onto the clipboard.
Select the section where you want to put it.
Paste it from the clipboard.
It will paste at Left=0, Top=0.
Move it to where you want it to be.

this is what I do.
In the Properties window, I select the component I want to move (and that I cannot selet in the designer) from the combo list, and I change by hand the Left and/or Top properties to move it in a 'clear' area of the form.
If the controls are just one on top of each other, you can also right click on the control at the top, and select 'send to back'. This will bring the hidden components to the top, so that you can select it and move around.
