Don't you just hate that? I think it's behaviour that goes all the way back to TCustomGrid. TIB_CustomGrid has a property FixedDataCols that lets you "anchor" a column.

Another workaround (if you can call it that) when I have more columns in a grid than will fit into the visible display is to echo essential columns of the current row into a status bar or into a small box of TIB_Text controls near the grid.
