In general, the same set of align functions is available for report controls as for screen controls. Use the Align menu and Align toolbar to size and position controls, either individually or in relation to one another.
When laying out report controls, it is important to remember that white (empty) space on the report for is preserved at runtime. This means that any extra padding that you leave above and below report controls is translated into empty space on the page when you print or view the completed report. As you finalize the layout of your report, remember to resize each report section to its content.
