I've often found that when using MacDraw, doing the allignments at a
higher magnification (800 or 1600%) means the printed result more precisely
matches what is seen on screen (at the high resolution). Some things
seem to be shifted to some degree when viewing at 100%, so it may look
wrong when you're viewing the full page. I don't know whether this will 
work with your problem, but it may be worth a try...
