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.

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