When I add/remove pages, or just move pages around in my document using the Pages panel, random objects on some pages move. They normally move just a slight amount, and stay with the page, but it is very annoying. I never know which objects will move, and I have to spend a lot of time trying to find the ones that have moved. Then if I move pages again, or add/remove pages, other random objects move. Does anyone else have this problem, or know how to stop it?
They are just free floating objects. It happens with objects that are
images, text boxes, pretty much any type of object. It looks like they just
move over like a half inch. I have tried locking the objects, and that does
seem to work, but I move things around so often that it's a huge hassle to
have to go back and unlock them all before I can move them on the page.
I am using CS5, and I have updated to the latest patch.
Try sending one of these files through .idml and see if it makes a difference. See http://forums.adobe.com/thread/526991 You may also want to try replacing the preferences. See http://forums.adobe.com/thread/526990 If you don't know what layout adjustment is, it's not likely that you've turned it on, and it probably wouldn't do this anyway except to move objects snapped to guides on master pages that have different left/right layouts.
