Summary

Random Layout Changes

Description of the issue

FMPA 10v3, Mac OS X 10.6.2 This is not the first time I've encountered this. Today I went to print a page of a layout and it printed incorrectly. It was offset vertically by about .5 inches. Upon entering Layout mode I found pages 2-6 of a 6 page layout had all shifted, or I should say all the objects on the pages had shifted. This first happened a few months ago, and as a precaution to prevent accidental pilot error I've taken to locking all objects on my layouts. All objects on this particular layout WERE locked but shifted anyway. As well, parts were not resized. I can say with confidence this was not a result of user error. This layout was for a six page contract form with portals, data fields, graphics and text fields. It was designed to be a "carbon copy" of an already existing paper contract that's signed by producers, unions and myself. The layout is not complex from a "data" point of view but IS visually complex. While restructuring the layout was indeed a PITA at least groups of objects seem to have shifted by a similar amount. I can't think of anything I'm doing to cause this problem to occur. I'm seeing it as the peskiest kind of bug . . . one that's very intermittent and hard to trace because, since nothing's been changed, there are no steps available to recreate the problem. RW
