Watch out how your 'Y' positions are stacking. You set the whole height to 200, and the level meter to 125(red). Next, LevelMeterFill is 137 (green)below that(notice where the </Element> is located for LevelMeter (yellow). That would put it 137 down from the top of the LevelMeter, and 262 units from the top of the whole Toolbar.

The 'Y' value is always in relation to the element it is nested in(hope that makes sense).

You will have to change the rest of your 'Y' values. Took me a while to figure that out too.

Edit: I even messed up the stacking when I tried to explain it.
