I recently had to delete my preferences in CS3 due to my palettes going blank. After doing so, now often when I am copying and pasting large groups of objects, the text frames will completely lose any Inset Spacing or Vertical Alignment they previously had. Restoring the preferences from another computer also seems to do nothing
The strange thing is, copying and pasting small groups keeps everything just fine.
It also does not lose the settings if it is pasted into the original document, only if it's a new one.
This problem is very irritating and adding signficantly to my work time with each document, and I just don't have the time to continue to fix documents when I'm working with dozens a day.
I have tried to google this problem but I haven't been able to find anything.
If anyone has any suggestions on how to fix this it would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
Sounds like object styles are at play somewhere.
We dont use object styles, but to make sure I went in and changed the default object styles to not have any settings for the Inset Spacing and Vertical Alignment, and no luck.
Thank you for the suggestion though.
