Maintaining vertical spacing between objects

I'm not terribly experienced with FM, and maybe some of these annoyances will go away with practice.  But I wonder if there is an easy way to set and then copy vertical spacing between objects.  I use that pop-up alignment tool (sorry -- have forgotten its proper name) with the blue arrows that shows when things align or have equal dimensions.  But it often does not show the spaces that I am trying to tweak.

 

Here's a specific example:  I have a layout with field text labels above the field boxes.   The default placement has too much space between the text and the box, so I have been moving the labels down -- moving each of them separately.  Is there a way to copy the right spacing in one instance and then apply it to all the labels/field boxes?

 

And taking this one step farther:  I have just figured out how to do a custom theme for printing reports.  Is there a way of adding this label/field box spacing to that custom theme?
