is this turned off?
Hi Eugene, just checked that, it is turned off, the checkbox is clear.
Very odd InDeed.
Can you post screen shots of the before and after(math)?
Hi, thanks for that.
I am not sure that is my issue though, the post you sent seems to refer to problems where content elements span spreads, some of the elements that are jumping about on my layouts are definitely located to a specific page. Also pages are not moving from left hand pages to right hand pages. I just posted screen grabs.
The pages I am deleting are not master pages, they are blank, also I am deleting 2 so the page that is page 3 becomes page 1.
I may have narrowed this down a little.
There are 2 sections in the document, pages 1-3 (lets call these 1a to 3a) are the first section, pages 4 onwards are the second section, with page numbering starting at 1 (lets call these 1b onwards).
All pages in the document are selected to allow spreads shuffle but not pages, except 1b to 2b ( first 2 pages of the second section), they are selected to allow the opposite, for pages to shuffle but not spreads, in other words keeping the spreads together.
If I select "Allow spreads to shuffle" for 1b-2b, then the first 1b changes to a right hand page (like the first page of a "facing pages" document), reflowing all the pages down the document.
I played with these settings on page 1b-2b:
- change to deselect "Allow document pages to shuffle"
- then change to select "Allow selected spreads to shuffle"
- then change to select "Allow document pages to shuffle"
If I do this in the wrong order, in other words select "Allow selected spreads to shuffle" before deselecting "Allow document pages to shuffle", 1b jumps to being a right hand side page.
When I made this change for spread 1b-2b (so that it allows spreads to shuffle but not pages) I can delete the first 3 pages of the document as before, this time no objects reflowed onto different pages.
The issue seems to be related to:
Starting a new section with a left hand page that has "allow document pages to shuffle"?
But should that shuffle or movement of a page from a left hand page to a right hand page cause page elements to move and jump as illustrated in the images in my earlier post.
I am confused!
@John – true, different things, but same remedy…
What perplexes me a bit: your left pages have an odd page number.
And the after(effect) you are showing is really quite strange.
Never seen that happen…
What exact version of InDesign are you using?
Using 5.5. The left hand pages are odd numbers as I have started a second section on a left hand page at number 1.
