Adjust Layout: add an option to ignore objects anchored in text or bring back legacy (2018) layout adjustment
I always made extensive use of the old layout adjustment feature in 'margins and columns', yet the new 'adjust layout' gives inconsistent and confusing results, resizing objects that never used to get changed.
It's gone from being very useful to a liability.
For me it was great for resizing the main text frame on multi-page (100s+ pages) books, but leaving the objects pasted into the text frame alone (figures, etc). Also moving page numbers aligned with margins, but not changing the sizes.
The new feature stretches and distorts carefully measured objects/figures, changes anchored object settings (at least, things move about incorrectly without the numbers updating) and causes other weird behaviours.
Thank you for reporting this issue.

I have the same problem in Indesign 2020. Adjusting layout / changing margins adjusts the image scaling or image frame size of the anchored or inline image.
