I am new to DipTrace and have been working very hard to get 3 small boards converted from ExpressPCB to DipTrace. All 3 boards are now completed and I'm working to get them fab'ed. Two of the boards were done by me, and I paid the DipTrace design service to do the third board. Each pcb is in its own .dip file.

I am now having a problem with panelizing the 3 boards into one .dip file in preparation for exporting gerbers. I'm following the instructions in the DipTrace help. I am able to combine the two boards that I have done myself, but when I paste in the board done by DipTrace, the reference designators on the DipTrace board shift around in position. I can paste a second copy of the DipTrace board back into it's own file with no problem, but when going to my file, I get this shift. If I paste one of my boards into the DipTrace file, I also get a shift.

There must be some configuration that differs between these two files.

Any ideas??
