Don't display border if consecutive borders splits accross frames/columns

Inside my textboxes, I have:

  • Unchecked: Display Border if Paragraph Splits Across Frames/Columns
  • Checked: Merge Consecutive Borders and Shading with same Settings

 

So far so good. Everything works exactly as I want it to, except for one edge case:

Sometimes a paragraph happens to end at exactly the same place as the textbox. When this happens, it displays the border. But I want it to NOT display the border when this happens, just as I want it to not display the border if the paragraph splits across frames/columns. This only ended up happening at one place in my document, so it looks like an error.

Will do. I thought the bug was me not knowing how to use the software properly.

I found a very hacky inelegant solution, which also highlighted a problem behind the problem. So, by adding a lot of funny whitespace characters, I have tricked inDesign into thinking two different paragraphs are really the same paragraph, getting the behaviour I want. But on closer inspection... there is no consistency between where the shading ends. I don't really care how far from the bottom of the textbox the shading ends, so long as it's the same consistently. It isn't.

So, a bug within a bug. Inception of bugs!
