In the design mode, open the States window and select each state and move the component
That's one solution, but moving a component, accurately, for every state is going to get very tiresome.
The closest I've got is that you can right click the component and select 'Apply current properties to all states', but this still feels like a kludge, and doesn't help if you if you want to apply this kind of global whitewash. I'd like to be able to select multiple states and then change properties.
I suppose this kind of fine editing just has to be done by hand, or I create sub states within the component, neither rest very well.
