Gutter - text frame behavior

Recommended Posts

After setting up a page you might consider to scale the gutter. But when scaling the gutter the text frame scales too.

Most of the time you wouldn't want the gutter settings to have such an influence on the page layout.

Did I miss something to prevent such behavior?

I think you're right. I can't see a way to change the gutter size whilst leaving the frame size unchanged. The gutter can be moved with the mouse but to change the size it looks like you have to use the panel input and any changes there change the frame size. I don't think that is a bug but it is a design flaw IMO.

I agree MickRose, maybe some sort of toggle on the panel to keep the overall width of the text frame locked while we increase the gutter width and it can change both columns. As it is we set the overall Text Frame width, choose the number of columns, set the width of the gutter(s) and then manually reset/redraw the Text Frame.
