With Adjust Layout ON, Text Frames shrink to extremely tiny size on changing Margins.
I am working in Adobe InDesign CC 2019 14.0.1. When I have a manuscript already flowed into my document and try to adjust the margins on the master page with Adjust Layout enabled, when the new margins are applied to the document, all the existing text boxes "disappear." From what I can tell, they have been resized down to an infinitely small point in the middle of the spread. Obviously, this is not useful. I used to be able to adjust the margins across an entire book-length document in one go with layout adjustment, and the text on every page would be re-fit to the new margins. The attached screenshots show the before and after on a spread (you can see the tiny text box in the middle in the after).
Am I missing a step here, or is this a bug?
Thank you for reporting the issue.
We are currently reviewing it.
I'm having the same issue. It used to work just fine and now it is completely broken. It's been so much time since reported. Is there any development on the issue?

Any update on this? I have this problem all the time now. This was never a problem before the last update.
Bug issue where pages with multiple frames of content condenses into one tiny frame in the center of the spread. (Photo attached of result)
Page tool and liquid layout features work just fine, so this is only happening with adjust layout.
Additionally, please add a feature that allows a facing page design to be converted to a landscape design (this would be useful when specifically converting printed designs for slideshows/epubs

I'm getting the same issue and it's driving me mad as it's a pain to find workarounds. Everything worked find in previous InDesign versions with resizing margins.
Yup, I'm getting this as well. It must be a bug. Adobe, please bring back the old Layout Adjustment!
