How do I change the size and placement of a custom field on an invoice template?

I have added 2 custom fields to my invoice template for a specific customer.  They populate just fine on my invoice, however, they do not show up on the invoice where I want them to be located and will not size according to what I've specified in the invoice template using layout designer.  How do I get the custom fields to maintain their size and placement from the template editing process to the saved invoice?  

 

I've attached a screenshot showing the invoice template I have edited open on the left and the way the final invoice itself looks when I'm ready to invoice that account on the right.  The alignment palette is grayed out even when I select the objects and will not allow me to specify any size or placement options.    I need to be able to fit a string of 14 characters in the Client ID # field and a person's first and last name in the Client Name field.  There isn't enough space in the boxes as they display on the actual invoice.  What am I missing here?  Is there a different way to accomplish this?

 

By the way, I am using Quickbooks Desktop for Mac 2019.  Thanks for any help or insight anyone can offer me!

The screen view seldom if ever looks the same as the printed version.
