    • Hi Shahzaib,

      Changing the position of another field is not as easy as it sounds!

      The 'size and position' formula calculates disctance from the left margin in 'twips'. A twip is 1/1440th of an inch.

      Things get even more complicated when you have to calculate the number of characters that can fit an inch - assuming you're using a non-monospaced font.
