diff. between a textbox in the form-editor and the started macro

the most annoying is the indicated height of the textbox, which can not be smaller than 18pt, while 9pt is set.
The background-color does not work,
3D border neither.
The macro was made ~ 2006 and there have always been differences between the editor and the macro.
No idea where to start looking for a solution
