add field to existing form

I want to add a new field to an existing form in Base. I have added the new field into the table and that works fine. But when I click “Add Field” on the form and try to drag the new field into the form it crashes. I can create a new form if necessary, but would rather add to existing one if possible

Very grateful for any ideas.




I have no problem adding a field by dragging or double clicking something in the ‘Add Field’ dialog. Usually do this by simply adding a new control to the form and modifying its’ properties (right click on control & select Control Properties). I am using LibreOffice v7.1.2.2 from TDF (The Document Foundation) on Ubuntu 20.04.2 and tested with HSQLDB embedded database.

Can you please elaborate on your problem? Possibly a recording of the screen would help in this issue. We were having an issue with our tennis scoring, form which was fixed by a guy when we posted a video of errors.
