Haha, yes, it is a purely functional tool isn't it?
Try this:
Double click the first object
Find the "Position" parameter
Set the x and y values of the Parameter until the box is where you want it.
Set the width and height until you get the intended size
Now grab the next edit text and repeat, you'll want to use the exact same value for x, and alter y until it is in the right position. Set height and width to be same as first.
Determine the difference between y values in first and second, this offset value will be added to each subsequent placement, continue until all edit boxes are set.
I'm asssuming that your static text is not exactly the same size as the edit text boxes, so finding the initial y value will be a bit trickier. To get them on the same centerline, find the difference in height between the static text and the edit text, divide by two, and subtract from the value of y in the corresponding edit text, this is the y value for the static text. Now you use the same value for the Yoffset as the edit text column and you end up with a perfectly aligned set of static and edit text boxes.
Hope this helps,
Stephen
