Alignment problem when printing


I created an invoice forum several years ago and have put up with an annoying problem but would like to correct it. I have Filemaker 9 and Mac OS X 10.6.2.


On one horizontal line (portal), I have the following fields:


Product ID, Product Name, Unit Price, Quantity and Extended Price.


When I go into Preview mode, each of these fields stays properly spaced with regard to each other but the entire line shifts left and right as I go from record to record. The "cheat" that I have been using is to go to the currect record and slide all of these fields to an incorrect position so that they appear okay in Preview mode. For the next invoice I issue, I will have to do this again. Everything else works fine except for this sliding problem.


I have not been active with Filemaker for the last several years and shudder at the thought of rebuilding this whole thing. Have you got any advice that could point me in the right direction? Thanks!
