Capital vs lower case letters changes the alignment


Hi All,
We use CreatePrint to print our checks on preprinted forms. The form project is used to align the amount and date line and the address lines on the pre-printed forms. What we noticed is that when the address lines are printed in all caps vs when they are printed in lower case changes the alignment of the amount and the date line which prints above the address lines. Has anyone seen this before? Is there a way to make the alignment stay the same?

1) Date and Amount line prints above the address lines
2) 6 address lines print next
3)When the address lines are in all caps the alignment of the Data/Amount line is different from when the address lines are in lower case.

Createform version 3.2
E1 9.0, 8.98 , OS400 - 6.2


In general, there are two types of fonts. The first is proportional space and the second is monospace. Proportional space fonts are designed so every letter only occupies the minimum horizontal space necessary for the letter. Thus, an "i" takes less space than a "w." Monospace typefaces, on the other hand, are designed so every letter and character takes the same amount of horizontal space.

The quick and easy way to get your data to line up would be to change the font to Courier.
