How Do I Create Text Boxes That Line Up?

Create the first text box in the desired location. Copy and paste the text box so you have a text box that is the exact same size.

Use the X and Y Coordinates in the second-level toolbar to specify the exact position of the second text box so that it aligns exactly with the first text box (either vertically or horizontally).
