Auto-size text boxes with rounded corners expands randomly.
Version 2018, 13.0
Set a text box to auto size height and width (with no line breaks)
Make the corners rounded
As you can see in the attached jpgs of before and after, sometimes the box expands in width and sometimes in height, but randomly, not wrapping around the text correctly.
Can you please mail me a sample document to reproduce the issue? I am unable to reproduce the bug.
Is the issue only specific to 13.0? What is the reference point for the autosize?

Hi, this issue is still a problem in InDesign 2020. (See attached file). My box is set to auto-size both horizontally and vertically, no line breaks. When I apply the object style, the box will sometimes grow to outside the borders of the page, or sometimes just add random space horizontally.

Set a text box to
– auto-size (horizontally & vertically + no line breaks)
– rounded corners
Upon scaling that box, the horizontal size gets blown up for some strange reason. This does only happen with rounded corners.
See attached screenshots (in german) of before and with scaling in preview mode applied.
