Column Rules Missing

Recommended Posts

The upper text frame has not been resized, it is exactly as I drew it out, the rule extends to the bottom of the inset.

But it does not extend to the top & bottom of the text frame, which is the issue I was considering. With the column rule top & bottom gap size set to zero, I think it should, just as it does when the text frame top & bottom insets are set to zero. Otherwise, to get a zero width gap with non-zero inset values, the top & bottom gap sizes would have to be set to negative values, but they will not accept negative numbers.

I duplicated this layer and moved it down to line up below the original, I then stretched it down just a small amount to increase the height, I did not change anything else. You can now see that the rule has moved down a small amount in relation to the frame height change. 

I think we are both seeing different aspects of the same issue: the length of the Column Rules stroke should always be based on the height of the text frame, whether or not there are any column insets or rule gaps. That way the gap sizes would remain constant regardless of any frame or inset height changes.
