    Spacing problem with Access Form

    Hello

    I'm new here, so apologies if I've posted in the wrong section. I am not remotely familiar with VB, coming from a perl/web tech background. I am writing an Access 2016 database for my girlfriend who owns a care agency. My problem involves the use of VB in the forms section.

    The form contains a series of questions, Each question has a checkbox which when clicked drops down a further series of questions and another checkbox with further questions. I am using VB to control the actions of the checkboxes i.e hiding the questions underneath the main question. Fully expanded the form looks like (questions.jpg attached), the second question is underneath the last box.
    When the checkboxes are not expanded, I want the second question to be underneath the first question. What I am actually getting is the second question halfway down the page (gap.jpg attached). Could somebody point me in the right direction to achieve this. Can it even be done by adding code to the VB script I am using? Code below.

    Thank you in advance.


    Code:
    Option Compare Database
    
    Private Sub Form_Open(Cancel As Integer)
    'this runs both buttons on open this just syncs the code as it flip flops visibility
    
    Call BreathingProbs_Click
    Call CirculatoryProbs_Click
    
    End Sub
    
    Private Sub BrAss_Click()
    'toggles visibility of text boxes on button press
    
    If Me.BrAss = True Then BrRiskRating.Visible = True
                            BrPaR.Visible = True
                            BrRiskRed.Visible = True
                            BrAction.Visible = True
                            
    If Me.BrAss = False Then
                        
                            BrRiskRating.Visible = False
                            BrPaR.Visible = False
                            BrRiskRed.Visible = False
                            BrAction.Visible = False
                           
    End If
    
    End Sub
                            
    Private Sub BreathingProbs_Click()
    
    'toggles visibility of text boxes on button press
    
    If Me.BreathingProbs = True Then BrDetails.Visible = True
                                     BrDetailsTxt.Visible = True
