Hi Chris,

what does "DTP" stand for?

I was wondering about the 'avoid occlusions' but spent all my focus on
the alignment testing, thanks for testing that too!

We should not break that. I like this new alignment capability, but
classic DTP text-handling is one of Squeak's most impressive
capabilities. Hopefully an easy fix..?
