Master Detail Layout Question

Just getting started in APEX, so forgive my ignorance. I have trawled through the documentation, searched YouTube, Googled, you name it but I cannot find the answer to this simple question.


How do you change the field layout of the detail block in a master-detail form? I have the form which is working correctly, but there are so many fields in the detail block (region) that you have to scroll to the right to see them. I don't want to do that and instead want the fields for each record to be split over 2 lines.


For example, here's what it's doing now in the detail block:


field1 field2 field3 field4 field5 field6


This is what I want:


field1 field2 field3 field4

field5 field6


So in other words, how do I force APEX to wrap the last few fields onto the next line rather than displaying all the fields on a single line? I could have done this in 10 seconds with Oracle Forms, but this is driving me nuts. Using APEX 4.2. Please help!
