I would suggest you use the same position method for the box as with the
data in the box. Then you have complete control over positioning.
example:
A R NRBOXADV1 BOX(10.40 0.70 12.60 3.15 *WIDE)
A FONT(2304 (*POINTSIZE 9))
A R NRBOXADV1A
A FONT(2305 (*POINTSIZE 9))
A @ADVSRV11 40 POSITION(10.66 0.80)
A @ADVSRV12 40 POSITION(10.90 0.80)
A @ADVSRV13 40 POSITION(11.14 0.80)
A @ADVSRV14 40 POSITION(11.38 0.80)
A @ADVSRV15 40 POSITION(11.62 0.80)
A @ADVSRV16 40 POSITION(11.86 0.80)
A @ADVSRV17 40 POSITION(12.00 0.80)
A @ADVSRV18 40 POSITION(12.24 0.80)
A @ADVSRV19 40 POSITION(12.48 0.80)

Subject: printer file DDS - is it possible to use two UOM in the sameprinter
file?


For example, inches AND row/column?

I am trying to convert an OVERLAY (which has only a few boxes) to a
printer file with the BOX command.

In the overlay, some items are positioned with row/column, while other
items are positioned using inches.

I would like to copy the overlay positions into the DDS positions using
the same measurements.

Can DDS handle both?

According to the manual, it appears no, but not sure.
