field properties changing when group copied

I think I've hit this before . . .

The new federal bankruptcy forms, with which I am stuck, have very small
lines at points . . .

I think this bit me before in another context.

The original card looks like:

But after I copy it, the margins and text size get changed:

(the blue text in the second one has been set by my program, from pure
ascii pulled from a db)

Do I need to choose between the evils of oversized fields and looping
around *every* field on *every* copy to use its customProperties to set
it's properties, or is there a sane solution available?
