Thanks for your explanation. Yeah, it didn't make sense to me the first.

However, I just tried it and it still works for me. I dbl-clicked on a part type of a 
connector which was "CON9"
In the part type properties dialog box, I changed the X and Y values to something, and 
clicked on the Global button. The  "Copy Attributes" was already checked for the two 
parameters I just changed. I changed the "Attributes to match by - Wildcard" to CON9, 
and when I pressed OK, the two connector's part-type text moved on top of each other, 
leaving the part locations alone.

It works.
