Hi, indesign updated on me, and now its acting in way i dont like 🙂
If i create a object (text frame, frame tool etc) the x/y scale is marked at 100%. If i change the scale by 120%, the object size increases by 20%, however the x/y measurements in the transform window/control panel revert to 100%.
'Usually', if i scale a object, it shows the object scaled percentage, not always 100%
thanks in advance
ah.. thanks.. thats the one 🙂
Your welcome, hope it helps 🙂
This is not new behavior. For as long as I can remember, and I've used Indesign for mor that twenty years, scale opercentage is always 100% when an object is selected with the Selection tool, and you read the correct percentage of the content using the Direct Selection tool.
Didn't they change the default setting for this at least once? I seem to remeber this happening, quite a few years ago. But I might be misstaken. Have also been using InDesign since V2. But since I also train people I end up using InDesign on many different computers and maybe it was just a custom global setting I encountered... 😄
it's possible the default preference has changed, but I don't recall it -- I'm a creature of habit and always go through teh prefs and set things first thing on new installs.
Same here and I am always a bit paranoid when it comes to the migration of settings... it often doesn't quite do the job as it should...
Hi @jasonb94222319 , Also, in case it isn’t clear, when the preference is set to Adjust Scaling Percentage, you have to watch out for conflicting scales—the parent container could be scaled differently than the image content. So if I’m not paying attention and select the parent container (black Selection tool), the Transform panel tells me it is scaled to 150%, but the image is actually scaled at 80%:
If I direct select the image (white Direct Selection tool), I get the content’s actual scale, which is 80% not 150%:
