I think I found out what the problem is.
The viewer hasnt been updated, so its not going to look any differently in that than it did before. You say it improved - specifically, in what way?
is the shift not as noticable any more? I only adjusted the designer to look at horizontal dpi, so if you have different values for horizontal and vertical dpi's there still might tbe a problem. Can you check what the dpi is on your display?
Regarding the text boxes, I looked at the .csd file you sent. The text box has a zero height.
You can use ctrl-a to select all the objects, which will display all the selection handles and you can see what I mean. If you drag the handles down so they form a rectangle, it takes care of the problem.
