Thank you for the additional information. However aligning items absolutely correctly has never been the purpose of the report designer. Actually as you've noticed by your experience, this can prove to be quite a tedious task especially if you have to create an odd looking report like the one you describe. This task becomes even harder if you take into account the fact that you are allowed to work with various measurement units and this is all being lumped together depending on the resolution you use, so that it would end up in pixels.
In other words - for precise alignment and positioning of report items, you would be better off specifying those directly through the respective Location/Size properties after some mathematical calculations on beforehand.
All the best,
