"Duplicate Spreads" Causes Objects to Resize

I have a document using a master page with a three-column text box. When I click "duplicate spread," the new spread has the same objects, but everything that's unlocked has shrunk and moved down on the page. The effect is continuous, so if I duplicate spreads again and again, everything shrinks.

 

This is a new one to me and not an issue I've encountered in pre-CC 2019 versions of InDesign. Is there a setting that's become default which I've missed?

What do you see when you visit File > Adjust Layout?

See the attached picture here. Nothing jumps out to me? Also if it helps, the margins/font size don't change, but the live objects on the page do get smaller in height/width.

I think we need the document to analyze the cause.

You could add the document to Dropbox and post the link to download it.

No need to package it, no need for placed images or used font files. Just the document file.

 

Thanks,
Uwe Laubender

Hi Tina,

we need a sample document to provide help.

And a screenshot that is showing what you did.

 

Thanks,

It has something to do with the based on property—if I sent the Based on Master for A-Master to None it doesn’t happen.

I'm not seeing that in the files located here. Same issue but neither master page are based on anything. Still if you duplicate a spread, the live objects shrink. See original/duplicate spread photos below.

Hi Rob,

yes, I can also see the issue and tested your workaround.

Cannot detect a cause for the behavior…

 

Tina, did you ever used the Liquid Layout feature with this document?

Did this document ever crash InDesign during its life time from InDesign CC 2019 to the lastest version 15.1.1.103 ?

 

Regards,
Uwe Laubender

The document is owned by someone else on my team, so I can't be totally sure, but it is definitely possible that it did crash at some point. Using liquid layout is not part of our team's workflow, I would say it is unlikely that it was ever turned on. Thanks so much for looking into it.

Your E4 master had adjust layout turned on in the file I downloaded. When I turned that off, it duped properly.
