My first inclination is to tell you to forget it and just make an adjustment on the cutter, but I know that won't, pardon the pun, cut it.
What happens if you remove the stroke on the outer shape? I suspect there's a change in alignment, though the numbers don't quite work out.
But back to forgetting about it.... This is a .0111 shift, or about .8 pt. That's well insided the amount of page-to-page shift you can expect from a laser or inkjet printer, and even probably hard to adjust for on the cutter if this is press output, which I strongly doubt since you are including more than just the variable data so I don't think you're printing on pre-made shells..
Thanks, Peter. I realize that I should just forget it since the shift is so slight, but this is the kind of thing that drives me absolutely bonkers!!!
Removing the outer shape and/or removing the stroke from it produces the same results in shifting. Oddly, when seeing what happend with .5 margins in the multiple records dialogue box, shifting did not occur.
Thanks for your help.
I understand where you are coming from completely. It would drive me to distraction, too, and I'd spend three days trying to find out why it was happening.
