Hello all the helpful people on this forum. :) I have another question, this one I'm finding rather humorous.

I have a form which was tabbing to strange fields I could not see during development. So I deleted all fields and text from the 2 pages of the form except 2 form fields, so I could see the cursor tab to 2 good fields and 2 bad fields. I still could not select the 2 bad fields. Even tried in illustrator (yay my work got me illustrator).

So I deleted page two. This picture shows the 3 remaining form fields on the page background. I selected the tab order to see how it was going. Field 1 is the good field I created and want to keep. Fields 3 and 2 are some strange erroneous fields, I don't know how they got there, probably in the conversion from Informs. Anyway, as you can see 3 and 2 are below the white paper form area. Therefore I am unable to select them with any tool I have tried... the form is, of course, completely developed so I don't want to have to delete everything just to get rid of these 2 mystery form fields. But, I don't even know how to select them even when everything is deleted.

Anyone have any ideas as of how I could get rid of these?
Thanks. :)
