Stroke thickness object style

Recently I have found some frames have a different stroke thickness to other frames with an applied Object Style. It's as if it has overrides from scaling, but even when I clear overrides, it stays the same. 

If I remake a fresh frame and paste the image in, it's fine, but annoying when it doens't apply to certain images! Is this just a strange glitch with this particular image or is anyone else having this issue?

Well, at some point you just scaled the frame.

With a document preference to apply the scaling percentage ( that's not default ).

 

Select the frame with the Selection Tool and check the value in the percentage fields of the Control panel or the Transform panel. It should not be 100% but a different value.

 

Example where one frame is scaled by 200% where the scaling percentage is applied. The other frame has the same nominal stroke weight, but was not scaled:

SameValue-ScaledDifferently-3.PNG

The effective stroke weight of the top frame is 20 Pt, the effective stroke weight of the bottom frame is 10 Pt. The nominal value for both is the same: 10 Pt.

 

With the Transform panel you could redefine scaling of the top frame to 100% so you can see the effective and the nominal stroke weight in one go:

Result:

When done, apply your object style and the stroke weight of your choice should be the effective stroke weight.
