[1.8.0.499] Column width handler is shifted

Recommended Posts

Steps to reproduce:

  1. Create a new document
  2. Create text frame
  3. Increase number of columns to 2

Expected result:

  • User should be able to adjust columns' width proportion by dragging the gap between columns

Current result:

  • User is able to adjust the proportion, but has to drag and drop some invisible handler which is placed to the left of the gap

The drag&drop zone is indicated by the left-right arrow cursor - please check the image:

Interesting, @SirPL. That works fine for me in 1.8.0.499 and identically to the way that 1.7.3 works. The arrow appears in the gutter.

On my machine the issue is persistent. May you please check the document I created in 1.8.0.499? 

What I also found is that the shift is getting bigger as the left column width is increased.

I can recreate it now. The key is that you have to resize the text frame to cause the problem.

I can draw any size text frame I want, with 2 columns, and the column-resizing arrow appears properly in the gutter.

However, if I then drag the right or left edge of the frame to make the frame wider or narrower, then the arrow is misplaced.

This happens in 1.7.3, too.
