    Different units for vertical and horisontal measurement get swapped

      I have a strange problem since ages. I prefer to work with different units for horisontal and vertical measurement: millimetres and points respectively. The strange thing is that when I try to move an object with the Move command, the dialogue box shows the units swapped.

      As you can see, InDesign suggests the horisontal position to be measured in points and the vertical scale in millimetres. It's been like this for many versions of InDesign, but I've never really had the time to react about it. I don't have the time now either, but at least I can throw out a question about it.

       

      Does anyone know why this happens? I know that objects rotated 90° will generally produce this effect, but for me it happens with all objects.
