Liquid Page Rule Default

I receive a dozen files each month from a client that are the wrong size (and they refuse to fix them). Each file is two pages that are 11.25 x 6.25 and need to be 11.0625 x 6.025. All I had to do in the past was change the document setup to the correct size. I used to be able to do this for years in InDesign and the content would all stay the same size and stay centered on each page.


For quite some time now, when I change the Document Setup, the content doesn't stay centered unless I first go to the Liquid Layout, click on each of the two individual pages with the Page Tool, and change the Liquid Layout Rule to re-center on each. Then I can go do Document Setup and change the page size to the correct size.


I am wasting a lot of time to do something that used work automatially without these extra steps.


Is there a way to set a preference somewhere to make the re-center automatic? I don't see anything under Preferences, and there is no submenu under the Liquid Layout palette.


I am still using InDesign 2019 due to some plug-ins we use that haven't released versions to work with 2020 or 2021.


Any help would be appreciated.


Thank you.
