Positioning Layers
I'd like to accomplish:
Having a single color background with multiple thin vertical layers that will be equal distance apart, thus giving a striped look. Unfortunately, I'm having trouble positioning the layer exactly using pixel coordinates. I'm not even sure if that can be done. If there's a work around I'd be interested as well.
Thank You

RE: Positioning Layers
Create your background, then do Filter->Render->Pattern->Grid. Select your color. Unchain the widths, and choose the width for your horizontal or vertical.

See demonstration

No voice, hope you get the point anyway.
