Text frame size doesn't match document set up

Feb 8, 2013 1:25 PM

Hello everyone! I have a document with the following specs:

Document setup.JPGMargins and Columns.JPG

Based on these specs, my text frame size should be:


Width: 6.69 - 1.28 - 0.75 =  4.66

Height: 9.61 - 1.0347 - 0.75 = 7.8253


The actual text frame I get is: Width: 4.66 & Height: 7.735. So the width is Ok but not the height. Any ideas?

    CS5.5 on Vista Ultimate

    Can you provide a snip as shown?

    Current releases do allow for variable page sizes within a document which would cause your dilemna.

    Are you resetting the margins, or was the athe spec you entered originally in Document Setup? Sounds a little like the margins might have been reset on a document page but not the master, or vice versa.

    Cange the margins to mathch the existing frame first, then enable Layout Adjustment, and finally, reset the margins to what they should be.


    And make sure that the zero point on the ruler is at the corner of the page. A reset zero point can give you the wrong corrdinates on a perfectly correct layout.
