[619rc] IDML text frame radius Import not correct

Recommended Posts

Just trying the RC beta and find an import issue that has not been there in previous betas. Opening the "Aero A4 Brochure 2013 v2 test.idml" file (you likely have this), one of the text frames brought in has the wrong rounded corners (far too rounded). Previous betas did not do that (see other attached screen cap done in previous beta). Also, not finding where I can even fix this. Is there somewhere to change the radius on a text frame? I cannot see anything in the contextual toolbar nor in the Text Frame panel.

Yes, using the node tool.

Hi @nwhit, I have an older version of that text file, but can't find the text frame you reference in the screenshot - can you upload it to the link in your other thread and I'll take a look, thanks!

Uploaded the IDML and ID files.

Thanks. Didn't think of that!

Interestingly, when I use the Node tool to "fix" the radius on the text frame, it visually corrects the radius but still leaves a magenta/purple outline of the original incorrect larger radius frame when preview is off. And this incorrect import of this text frame didn't happen in previous betas.

Further info. I did a new import of the IDML, then fixed a couple other issues where it had problems importing AI files correctly (so I changed them to ADes files). I then went back to this mysterious text frame and used the node tool to modify that text frame's corner radius. This time NO FUNNY magenta line remained! Why, who knows!

But in looking at it some more, I can see that in previous betas I am thinking that this text frame likely came in with a 4.2mm radius just like the rounded rectangle above/behind it. And it looks correct when opening the previously saved APub file in the new RC beta.

However, when I open the same IDML file in 584, while the radius of that text frame shows as being the same 4.2mm, it is much larger visually and requires resetting the radius to 0.4mm in order to match the correct/previous look and the matching rounded rectangle behind/above it.

Perhaps there is some setting I'm unaware of? But that said, I never had this issue when opening this same IDML in any of the previous betas, so this is something new and repeatable. Certainly not the end of the world for an IDML import, but might cause others issues if it does it too often, and also suggest something isn't being interpreted correctly now.

Just tried this in Friday's beta 1.8.2.603 and it still does the same thing. I rechecked the ID file and the radius on that text frame is 4.2 mm. But when opened in the latest beta, the setting of 4.2mm is not visually correct and has to be reset to c.0.4mm. Not sure why it isn't reading/following/interpreting the IDML file on this. It follows the radius settings in all the imported rectangles but apparently not a text frame.

This is logged with us, thanks for the report

If you change the document DPI to 72 it will display similar to the IDML file, alternatively you can adjust the corner values to get it to look similar

Interesting! Yes, hope that can be fixed!

Still not resolved in beta 619rc.
