Column Rule disappears when grouped objects **with Text Wrap** are moved/nudged
Firstly, let me just say a BIG thanks for introducing Column Rules in CC 2020.
However, I've found a couple of problems so far.
- New File
- Draw a text frame (no text needed) and set the Columns to 2, and turn ON the Column Rule (all basic, default values).
- Draw another text or graphic frame (doesn't matter which) and place it anywhere (doesn't matter if it overlays the text frame, or not).
- Group the two objects.
- HERE IS THE KEY STEP: With the group selected, turn on Text Wrap (doesn't matter which... anything other than 'None').
- Move the group ANY amount... e.g., simply nudge it with the arrows on your keyboard. (keyboard or drag with the mouse... the results are the same).
The column rule will disappear!
If you double-click to select the 2nd object drawn (not the text frame) and nudge it on its own, the column rule will re-appear. BUT... as soon as you nudge the text frame (on its own) or nudge the group again, the column rule will disappear again.
The trigger is the Text Wrap. Without it, it behaves normally.
It does not matter if there is Text Wrap applied to the individual objects. The trigger is the Text Wrap applied to the GROUP of objects.
Hope this helps.
The fix for this issue is now available in the latest update of InDesign – that is, InDesign 15.0.2.
Please update your InDesign application to get this fix.

Confirmed!! :) Works perfectly.
Thanks so much. :)
BTW ... I also checked out the other Column Rule bug I reported, namely: Column Rule colour is inconsistent vs. Fill and Stroke ... and it seems to be fixed as well (on MacOS, at least ... haven't checked Windows 10 yet). Cool! :)
