Good grief - how do you turn this adjustment thing off? There is no selecting or deselecting option. And, yes, I followed the link Steve posted.

@Mr Met,

I've branched this to a new discussion because the other discussion was about the  Control Panel.

As I wrote in the article I referred to to...

What’s New With InDesign CC 2019

... there are three places where it can be turned on.

To turn it off, revert the file back (File > Revert) without saving the changes.

To keep it from happening again,

(1) if you're in File > Document Setup, DON'T click the Adjust Layout button

(2) DON'T choose File > Adjust Layout, or (3) in the Properties panel, don't click the Adjust Layout button.

It's a great feature when you DO want to change the size of a document, the margins of a document and/or the bleed of the document, and have your artwork ADJUST with the layout!

Steve Werner, please see the page spread sample included. When I changed the inside margin, it re-threaded all chapters. Why the gutter connection? Maddening! Can I repair this without going page by page to thread the way I had it? ~ LisaScreen Shot 2018-11-13 at 12.19.33 PM.png

Steve -

Wait, it sounds to me like you're telling us how to turn off Adjust Layout when it magically comes on, but I don't see where I go at this point to turn the %$#*!!! thing off permanently. Please prove I'm wrong and show me where I can turn the thing off without reloading everything or risk losing all my personal preferences.


Yes, I can see the box to check to turn on this "feature", but it's always been off. Even now, when I see it's magically turned itself on, I turn it off. Then I open my file... and get the "feature" again. I've been using CC 2019 for more than a year now, I do not recall ever having this problem until today.

I've never seen the feature magically turn itself on.

 

I'd suggest the two troubleshooting tips I usually suggest starting with: (1) if this happens only with one particular file, it may have become corrupted. Save the file as IDML (File > Save As > InDesign CS4 or later [IDML]. Then reopen the IDML file.

 

(2) If it happens with all files, you may need to restore you InDesign preferences or caches:

hmmmm... well, actually, when I woke up and opened a brand-new file to begin a layout a couple days ago, the "feature" came bouncing up as soon as I created a New Document. I also discovered that my New Document Creation window had reverted to the larger new one, and immediately changed that preference back to where it belongs.

I wasn't awake enough yet to think of going into Time Machine and finding an intact previous set of my InDesign settings, I just went into preferences and started changing things back to the way they were the night before when I quit working for the night. I'll probably trip over a few more "helpful" changes Adobe made to settings in my preferences. I do not like this, I do not like it one little bit. This does not look like a "file corruption", this looks like Adobe was wandering around on my hard drive without my knowledge or free-consent. If I was required to consent to these intrusions when I rented this software, I'm sure a shiver went up my spine.

I am on the same boat, Magically and suddenly this "Adjust Layout" thing is turned on, does not work well enough for me to use, and I cannot turn it off. Why isn't the Turn on/off on the Document Setup window? Because that would make too much sesne?
