All “company” names that are imputed in the Company field line up in the center of the space rather then the left margin. Therefore the beginning of the name is not visible. I must put the curser on the name and push left to get to the beginning of the name. Most frustrating… I have tried to correct the problem through the contact layout tool, with no success. Can someone please advise me on a solution?

This is a known issue. The only solution so far is to make your field bigger so that it is bigger that the longest company name...

Here is a FREE addon we developed for the text box alignment in ACT!. It forces the text boxes to display the first part of the character rather than the last part when the text string is longer than the width of the text box.
I created this screen shot of the before and after. The text boxes whose data is longer than the text box width do not display the left most characters of the Company or Contact fields. With Left Align for ACT! by Durkin installed you can read any field from the left most position if the text string is longer than the text box without increasing the size of the field.
Its a FREE add-on. Here is the link to the download:
