I wish Designer would have a layout grid for better/easier layout of forms. This would allow for easier alignment of fields and text,and thus, better looking forms. There are layout regions, but the items you can put in it are limited.
I use tables for layout, but this can cause lots of problems.

Per my limited knowledge, this can hardly be done with the currently rendering mode of Notes.
Compared with the browser rendering with html, it can use either a flow mode which display objects in order, or a precise mode using CSS to locate objects. Notes consumes the CD data stream and renders in a similar way to the former one of the browser.
If the underlying CD format and the rendering mode are changed, both this function and other many features will be possible such as editing and displaying the form content on-the-fly .
