I'm not sure why it's doing that. When I place an image and select it (the frame) with the Selection tool, it always reads as 100%. If I resize it (by Command or Shift-Command dragging a handle), I can see the percentage change as I'm changing it, but the display always reverts back to 100% when I release the mouse button. I can only see the changed percentage if I look at the content with the direct select tool, but the frame is always at 100%.
If I know that the image needs to be at 100%, I can set it on the contents and then fit the frame to the contents. Would that help?

I think this is the result of having the scaling option in the prefs set to Adjust Scaling Percentage, but the behavior you describe of rfverting to 85% would not be normal, either, in that case. Have you tried doing a "Redefine Scaling as 100%" from the Control panel flyout menu?
i don't even knew the function, thanks Peter!
YES is the result of having reduced the frame WITH the adjust scaling percentage, and then change the preferences with the apply to content radio button. so the "normal" behaviour of always showing the same % returned.
but i think that text warp should be a fixed value.
no, i tried all, yes the content always show the real percentage of the image, the solution is once again known by the ol' good pete
