FHMX 11.0 handles bitmaps differently than the previous and subsequent
versions do. The difference in placement is caused by a white border area
in your bitmaps. Older versions would place a bitmap starting at the lower
left corner of the actual image *in* the bitmap, such that if there was a
white border, the image was automatically "trimmed". In v11.0, the image
starts at the lower-left-most corner, regardless of any extra white space.
The issue was addressed in v11.0.1, so if you update the FHMX on your G4,
the problem will go away. Short of that, you could manually trim the
bitmaps in a raster editor like Photoshop to fix your files.
