Margins of legacy reports are off when displayed in Crystal 2011



I am currently evaluating Crystal Reports 2011 as an upgrade / replacement for Crystal X. To this point everything has been working fine but I have begun to compare reports that have been printed from our current system using the Crystal X assemblies with reports printed from our system using the Crystal 2011 assemblies. What I have observed is that any report printed from our system using the Crystal 2011 assemblies prints up and to the left by about 1/16 of an inch compared to the same report printed with the Crystal X assemblies. Unfortunately our system utilizes a susbstantial amount of reports as well as reports that are sent to dot matrix printers where the placement of fields need to be exact. Is this a documented issue and, if it is, how can I overcome the problem without needing to open every single report?

A note about our system: we have Crystal Reports integrated into a .NET application. All old versions of the Crystal assemblies (10.0.3300.0) have been updated to the new version (10.5.3700.0). Obviously this includes the Report Viewer control. Thanks for any help that you might be able to provide.
