transform window y-position not correct

Recommended Posts


I just noticed the Y-position of any object, displayed in transform window is not correct. Only on the first page, it is correct.

Little bit of playing around shows me that the Y axis 0 (zero) position is the page below the page on which the object resides.


Edit: some more playing around and this is really messed up, the X co-ordinates are off by the width of a page on page one and are negative values. Changing the origin on one spread seems to mess things up worse.

On page one, the X coordinates are based on the right end of the page even though the rulers show them on the left.

The Y coordinates on page one seem to be correct.

On pages after the first, the X coordinates seem to be correct, and the Y coordinates are what @Old Bruce described above.


EDIT: also noticed that this only shows up on multi-page documents.  On a single-page document the coordinates seem to be fine.
