I want a rectangle with a pixel thick boarder.
I draw a rectangle, and adjust the boarder to 1px.
The boarder is now 2 pixels wide.
I change it to 4px, it's 8 pixels wide.
I align it centre, inside, outside, the thickness doesn't change (but the functions work correctly).
I've been fighting this problem all day. Any help?
Did you scale the frame?
Sorry, I solved it myself, but I'll leave this up here in case someone else does something stupid like me.
Solution: Don't use zoomed in artwork to determine how big a pixel is. Indesign displays things smaller than pixels which can be misleading.

If you are designing for screen there is a zoom level that displays pixels at actual size—a 1:1 object to monitor pixel ratio. This thread might help:
