I have searched for the answers to my problem to no avail.
I am running InDesign 2015.3 Release.
My problem is that when I place vector artwork into indesign, the content frame fits to the artboard, not the art on the artboard.
I am used to a different default behaviour where placed vector content fits to the art.
Further, when I try to fit frame to content, the frame again fits to the artboard.
Is this a setting I am missing, or a software change?
It's quite disruptive to my workflow for various reasons!
Thanks in advance for any assistance offered.
An update -
I just asked my colleague (same version of AI and ID as me) to reproduce the problem with identical files - he does not have the issue, vector files are fitted to the art.
I will try to trash preferences /re-install InDesign etc.
Update on update...
Re installation did not work.
Re-installation with the removal of preferences solved this issue.
Fitting depends on the crop options selected when you initially place the artwork, which is accessed by checking the Show Options box or holding down the shift key when you click OK in the Place dialog. Your choice is "sticky" until you change it, and will apply to both PDF and .ai files.
