InDesign CS6 - scaling/resizing problem

Feb 12, 2013 6:46 AM


We have some problems in indesign cs6 8.0.1.

Picture is placed in indesign, applyed stroke 10pt to frame, with or without corner effects. When picture is resized (ctrl+shift), seems that frame resizes in different % than picture. This leave empty space between picture and frame. Look screenshoot bellow:



Another problem is that we cant apply new object style which define stroke and corner size if picture is placed and scaled with "adjust scaling percentage" preferences. We need to reset transformation via transform pallete "redefine scaling as 100". This is problem in my case because I need to rework entire book. Maybe some script can help but why I cant reset effect parameters with "object style" I dont know.


any suggestion is welcome.

    Windows ? On PC it's important to press the Ctrl key before you click the mouse button or it isn't registered (old bug).

    For resizing. Ctrl + Shift + click, and hit the keys first.

    Not a clue. I don't use Adjust Scaling Percentage, so I don't know if this is normal behavior, or another unique problem you might have.


    What sort of background programs and utilities do you run? It's possible soemthing is in conflict and causing ID to misbehave.

    Are you keeping the Ctrl key down while you click and drag?


    Was this a new install of Windows, or an upgrade? Do you use a custom keyboard shortcut set? If so did you copy it from an earlier version of ID? Did you ever replace the preferences as I sugested in your other thread? You have a lot of things going on that are not right, and that suggests a problem in your installation.
