Page Rulers Corrupted

I have recently upgraded from InDesign CS5 and 5.5 to CS6. Think I may have found a bug.

 

Try this:

1. Create a new 4 page document with facing pages.

2. Control click on the one of the page rulers and switch to 'Ruler Per Page'.

3. Scroll through the document and zoom in and out a few times.

4. See if you get the same corrupted vertical ruler display as I do?

 

Here's a screen grab:

Mac OS X 10.7.4, InDesign CS6 (8.0)

    User interface corruption of panels, tools, rulers, etc. can often be corrected by restoring your InDesign preferences. Try that.

     

    Here's how:

    I see nearly 60 people have viewed this thread. Has anyone else tired what I suggested and got the same results, or, for that matter, not got the same results?

     

    Well I cannot speak for anyone else, but I entered this thread not knowing what version was purportedly affected. If the thread title has the version number in it, I would have only viewed the thread if I was upgrading any time soon. Which I am not.

     

    Take care, Mike

    No worries, papacino. I had never noticed the effect in 5.5 and it caused me to give it a whirl.

     

    If you can continue to replicate it, I would encourage you to report it. Hopefully someone on Windows (my OS) can try your formula as well and comment ehre and possibly any bug report if need be.

     

    Take care, Mike

    I believe I can confirm this on Windows 7 as well, but only at low zoom levels that require large values between tick marks.
