Objects move when adding pages

May 5, 2013 5:33 PM

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?

    What sort of objects? Are they anchored in the text or free-floating?   Which version of InDesign? have you updated to the latest patch?

    Does it happen in just this one file, all older files, new files or any file at random?  Is Layout Adjustment active? Are the objects snapped to guides?

    Try sending one of these files through .idml and see if it makes a difference. See  You may also want to try replacing the preferences. See  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.
