This has just recently happened but now when I want to add a text frame at x 32px on my spread it now moves it to x 32px on my pasteboard. 

 

Any suggestions on why this happening and how I can change it back? I've searched all over and can't find how to resolve this! 

 

It's so frustrating!

Hi, thanks for yout suggestion. I had the ruler already set to spread but I've just worked out what happened. 

On the transform grid the point was centred now I've put it back to top left corner. Seems so easy now but I just didn't notice before!

Set the ruler to "Ruler per Spread" and then try moving the frame to your desired location

That would have been my next suggestion, but I thought you were mindful of it 🙂

Just as a heads up, if you double click the box where the two rulers intersect, you will reset the zero point to the top left of the page. This is more accurate than dragging the zero point back into position.
