Periodically I experience a problem with the last field on a subform. Whatever field alignment I set using Output Designer, when central pro processes the data the and aligns the data topleft. This is a particular problem when outputing financial data which I need to right align because the number of digits before the decimal point is variable. I usually work around this by adding dummy fields at the end of the subform, but this does not always fix it.
Any ideas as to what causes this? (so that I can avoid it)
Or any software fixes for it?
Are there any tools for examining the content of the .ifd or .mdf files, as this may through light on the cause.

You can look at what's in the form by exporting the form to XFT format. This is an XML format that will be the Adobe forms design format going forward. It contains the information about the field. Look for <align> elements contained within <field> elements.<br /><br />Is it possible that the field in question runs outside the printable area? That can sometimes cause mis-positioning.
