Spread, custom dimensions: Move or Delete Fails

Recommended Posts

I experience issues with custom spread dimensions:

When I delete such customized page then its content gets deleted but its custom dimensions remain in the document and get assigned to another page.
When I move such customized page then its dimensions get assigned to another page, too.
When I move it again even more pages get its altered dimensions, until all pages have this altered size.

Try this document:   170330 custom spread dimension.afpub  

... or create a new one:
– master, landscape, facing pages, 7 pages.
– create a filled rectangle on master page to make changes visible.
– select page 1 and alter its spread dimensions. (same height, double width – to make it obvious)

Please test:
1. Delete page 1 –> and check its dimensions after delete
2. Move page 1 behind page 5 –> see page 4 changing dimensions
3. Move it again and see more pages become new dimensions

Hi thomaso,

This seems to only really relate to the first page in a facing page document, and I can kind of see why but I wouldn't say it's expected behaviour.

I've logged this for the developers to consider further.

Thanks

('only' ... first page: might be most often used in custom size, for instance as cover, either just larger and/or with additional spine)
