Guides move after adding pages

Postby Jiri Melnicky » 03 May 2017, 18:28

When guides are entered in the master page, the guides change after adding pages. The error occurs when manually drawing the guide even when selecting "Create Bleed & Safety Guides".

This worked fine for me. Could you please post detailed steps to recreate this?

Did you try it in Windows or Mac? Mac versions may work correctly...

It's not happening here using Windows.

Of course. But it is possible that version QXP2016 for Mac does not make this mistake...

But if the issue is using Windows as you and I do, and I do not have the issue as you do, then it isn't a universal problem.

As to why you have this issue and I do not...I have no idea.

Detailed steps:
1) Select A-Master A Page
2) Use the mouse to set the guides manually
3) I choose Page 1 - the guides are correct
4) Select Insert page - the guides change the position on all pages (the positions on the A-Master A Page will also change)

The same situation occurs when I set the guides using the function
"Create Bleed & Safety Guides".

Using bleed and safety guides results in the same.

Unfortunately, I do not know why he does it just with me. But I already know how to get rid of bug - set up at least 2 pages when entering a "New document". The guides set in A-Master then work correctly.

Not around a computer at the moment. The only difference it seems to me is I use inches and you are using millimeters. I'll try that when I get back to the office.
