Align text in a text object with embedded fields

I have always had a problem with this and it has come up again so time to ask, am I missing something?

I have a text object in a report with fixed wording and two embedded fields containing variable information. Fonts are all the same formatting (Arial 8 Regular) but the alignment between the fixed text and the embedded text is never correct in the final print out. The embedded fields align OK but not with the fixed text.... The result does not look neat. So am I missing something? Thaks, Paul.

Well I have found a solution which works! If I create an unbound calculated field which combines the fixed text plus the field values, with spaces inbetween, all is displayed in a pleasing manner with no misalignments. eg: "The response to flicker at 30c/s was " +[:NEUROLOG:ERGLIGHT.FLICKERSATUN]+" "+[:NEUROLOG:ERGLIGHT.FLICKER]. Shame the simpler approach doesn't achieve this!
