    With a move label macro, prevent label from moving onto another label

    The code below is designed to move a selected label down every time the macro is called. Is there any way to prevent the label from moving down if another label is already in the position? In other words, I don't want a label to be able to move onto another label (making it hard to see both).

    Hi xladept. I appreciate your attempt. You are the only brave soul so far. It didn't work when I tested it. I got this error "Object required". The bold section below was highlighted in debugging.

    Thanks for the rep!


    I've got a typo (my wife is a secretary(!))

    Hi xladept,

    I modified your code a little to make it work for my purposes. I know that my modification was not made to perfection, but I was having trouble having the code both exit sub and unselect the label. If you could instruct me on how to accomplish this I will add back in the exit sub.

    Thanks!

    Yes, Socrates decided that death was not as scary as we surmise: I disagree with him, of course, on that subject.

    It is a very convoluted (and surely amateur) code, but here is my complete code relevant to this thread. It can support infinite labels that have a size of the following: 60 height and 60 width.

    This code moves a 'selected' label using keyboard commands. The code now prevents a label from moving over the top of another label.

    Can somebody take a crack at speeding this code up?

    did wonders, but the code is still slow and the screen refresh still occurs after the code finishes (slowing the code with each added label).

    Thanks in advanced!
